“If you take the girl from behind it is not rape” said an African boy charged with rape.
Six boys middle eastern/african backgrounds have been charged with rape or the attempted rape of five young girls in Hørsholm, Nivå and Kokkedal, Denmark’s BT reports.
“We did not break into de homes, they invited us in, so there is no rape” said another boy.
Nordsjællands Police are currently investigating a number of alleged rapes of girls in Nivå, Kokkedal and Hørsholm last year. Meanwhile, the local parents are scared and watch their children carefully.
According to the allegations, several of the assaults took place in Holmegårdsvej in Kokkedal.
The boys plead not guilty and no action has yet been brought in the cases. The girls had to perform oral sex and others were raped. The youngest of the girls were only 13-years-old.
“There was no rape. If you’re with a girl at her home, it’s not rape like if you grab a girl outdoors and force her down. She lied and the charges are exaggerated,” a father of one of the boys says.
One of the boy’s mothers says ‘racism’ is behind the accusations.
“I cry when I think of him. I only have him. He is really sweet and polite, and he does not bother (..) Suddenly, the police comes and takes him. Now I want to understand why. I think it’s strange. Perhaps she [the victim]is racist or has something against foreigners,” the mother says.
Five out of six of the boys have been detained since June, and are in a closed institution for young people. All of the suspects have Turkish or Arab names according to Danish media.
