Teenagers rape ex-girlfriend ‘to avenge broken heart’ in northern Turkey
İsmail Saymaz - SİNOPFour teenagers in northern Turkey are accused of raping one of their ex-girlfriends for breaking his heart.
According to security sources speaking to daily Hürriyet, a second-year high school student identified as F.Ü. took his girlfriend to an empty lot in the Sinop province on May 25 after she said she wanted to break up.
Three teenager friends of F.Ü. arrived shortly afterward. The four suspects then raped the young woman and filmed it on camera as a means of blackmail, sources added.
The young woman filed a criminal complaint despite the blackmail threat and the four suspects have been detained. In his testimony, F.Ü told the Ankara Criminal Magistrate of Peace that he did not rape the woman.
S.E., on the other hand, admitted that they had raped the victim. “Frankly, we, as four friends, had decided to avenge for pain she gave F.Ü.,” he said. The other suspect, A.Y., claimed that his sexual intercourse with the victim was “consensual.”
Police also found out that two of the suspects had sent cellphone messages to the victim after the incident, begging for forgiveness.
The judge ordered the arrest of all four suspects and sent them to prison for their trial on charges including sexual assault and deprivation of liberty.
