Three men brutally raped a girl who was lost on her way home.


Three men and a boy raped a girl who had asked them for directions when she got lost on a night out with friends.
The girl, 16, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was trying to get to a friend’s house in Ramsgate, Kent, when she was attacked and then dumped on the street.

The girl was found crying in the street by two people returning from a night out.
Rafiullah Hamidy, 24, Shershah Muslimyar, 21, Tamin Rahmani, 38, and the 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, all denied rape but were found guilty by a jury in May.

Sentencing, Judge Heather Norton said the girl had been trying to make her way on foot back to a friend’s house having missed the last train home, and was “young, drunk, disorientated and vulnerable”.

She said the girl thought the four were going to help her, but instead they “took her up to a bedroom, pushed her on to a mattress and repeatedly raped her” over a sustained period.

Three of the men were each jailed for 14 years each and a 17-year-old boy was jailed for seven years.
