Teen 'gang raped' on Naples beach

A 15-year-old girl was allegedly raped on a Naples beach by a gang of minors, police sources said on Thursday.

The incident took place in the upscale Naples seaside district of Marechiaro in late May but the teenager only recently told her mother what had happened, according to the sources.

"I trusted them, they seemed like well-behaved boys," local daily Il Corriere del Mezzogiorno cited the girl as saying.

"What could possibly happen to me in Marechiaro?"

Two members of the gang took off her bikini while the others removed their clothes, surrounded her and took it in turns to rape her, according to the girl.

The girl was able to show her mother photos of her alleged rapists on Facebook.

Prosecutors are reportedly investigating the case.
