WA trio arrested over Qld teen’s rape

THREE men have been arrested in Perth over an alleged gang rape of a 17-year-old girl on the Gold Coast, last month.

The attack is alleged to have happened last month on the Gold Coast, when the girl went with one of the men to a holiday unit.

It's claimed the teenager was then subjected to a brutal sexual assault by all three men, who are aged in their early 20s.

Detectives yesterday made a breakthrough in their investigation when two men were arrested at Perth Airport after they stepped off a flight.

It's believed the men had been returning from an overseas trip.

A third man wanted over the alleged attack was arrested at his Perth home.

The men will face an extradition hearing in Perth this morning.

Detectives from Queensland are understood to have travelled to WA and hope to fly the men back to Queensland later today.

Queensland Police last night said the trio had yet to be formally charged ahead of the extradition hearing.

Charges are expected to be laid when the men are placed into the custody of Queensland Police.

WA Police declined to comment.
