Benidorm woman, 19, ‘drugged and raped by “Wolf Pack” gang who filmed horror attack in basement on New Year's Eve’January 9, 2019
Police are now investigating whether more women may have been victim to the gang of suspected thugs who are feared to have a carried out similar assaults.
The sister of one of the accused reportedly said she discovered the accused in the basement of their home in Callosa d’En Sarria.
She claimed to have found her brother and three friends – aged between 19 and 24 – with the victim, all of them naked from their waist down, El Pais reports.
Spanish Police then caught the suspects in the act when they entered the property.
According to Euro Weekly News the young woman was "possibly under the effects of a drug", as she was didn’t know "where she was or where she lived", nor did she recall what had happened.
A video allegedly taken by the perpetrators on their mobile phones "shows the woman resisting her aggressors throughout". The results of toxicology reports are likely to take up to two months to arrive.
According to the site, the court has decreed "provisional detention for the detainees" as alleged perpetrators of sexual assault, two offences of abuse and one offence against privacy.
Spanish police fear the group, who are all Spanish of Ecuadorian origin, may have further victims, telling the site that "similar aggression on at least two other occasions and with different girls" and believe that "more cases will arise" in the course of the investigation.
Last night El Espanol reported that two of the men arrested claimed they had been drinking and did not remember "anything".
One of the suspects, a 22-year-old man, is said to have a history of gender violence and sexual abuse with a minor.
The suspect's group name – "La Manada de Callosa d'En Sarrià) ( the "Wolf Pack" of their town) – has echoes of the 2016 Running of the Bulls sexual assault case, when a group of five men were found guilty of sexually abusing an 18-year-old at the 2016 Sanfermines fiestas in Pamplona, northern Spain.
That case became known as "La Manada" after the name of the WhatsApp chat group used by the men and the other friends of theirs.
