Eight Sattahip boys who allegedly tried to gang rape a 14-year-old girl in a classroom at Baan Bang Saray School surrendered to police and will be prosecuted in juvenile court.
Together with parents, the boys turned themselves in to Sattahip Police investigator Capt. Akachai Moonlee July 8, reportedly admitting to the sexual assault on the girl, who only escaped rape by biting two of her attackers and screaming as a teacher walked outside the classroom July 3.
The boys and their parents turn themselves in to Sattahip police to face questioning for attempted rape on their 14-year-old classmate.
Police conducted the boys’ interrogation with social workers from the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security. Akachai said the teens will be prosecuted by the Chonburi Juvenile and Family Court.
The Sattahip parents of the victim said their daughter was thrown against a wall so hard she fell and, once on the ground, seven boys held her down while the eighth watched the door.
The parents said they met with the school’s principal and were he would not take personal responsibility for the attack, that it was not the school’s fault and that school officials do their best to protect students from crime.
The parents said the principal pledged to take disciplinary action against the boys if police charged them with the attempted rape.
