A 14-year-old girl allegedly raped by two men in Bawen, Semarang, was given an intoxicating herbal concoction prior to the incident at a party where she was taken by friends.
One of the suspects, Muhammad Bandowi, 29, told the press at the Semarang Police office on Monday that they boiled leaves from devil’s trumpet plants and mixed the liquid with tea. “We wanted to get drunk, and then we went to find a girl we could play with. We met the girl, who was brought there by her friends. She drank some too, and when she was half-conscious, I raped her,” Bandowi said Monday.
Bandowi also said he hit the girl twice in the face. After the incident, he left the girl alone in a hut.
A second suspect, Ahmad Rifai, 26, said he also raped the girl. “I didn’t know whether she was injured or not because I didn’t know that [Bandowi] had raped her too,” he said.
Semarang Police chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Vincentius Thirdy Hadmiarso said the girl was with her friends at the party, held at Taman Siwarusmas in Semarang. “We have questioned five witnesses,” he said. Four of the witnesses were teenagers aged 14 to 16, while the other was 24 years old.
“So far the ones who raped her were two people, Rifai and Bandowi. But we’re still investigating,” Vincentius said. (evi)
