The teen survivor of an alleged gang rape in Rio de Janeiro is speaking out for the first time about the horrific incident, and the related graphic video that went viral on social media.
“I have to wait for the justice system, they’ve already shown that nothing is going to happen,” the 16-year-old girl, whose identity has been concealed, said in an interview with TV Record. “I am waiting for the justice of God. That might be late but it never fails.”
Rio de Janeiro police are currently searching for approximately 30 men allegedly involved in the gang rape, which the victim said happened while she was drugged, NBC News reports.
“I was very groggy, there were lots of people with guns, lots of young guys laughing and talking," the victim told TV Record.
"They robbed me,” the teen said. “Not just in material goods, but in a physical way."
Police have placed two men in custody, while arrest warrants have been issued for four more men who were allegedly involved with the assault.
