The victim, 20, was attacked on Tuesday evening in Brookvale Park, Birmingham. According to a bystander, he was forcibly removed of his clothes in the “disgusting” incident. “I saw him running up North Park Road, naked, covered in blood, wailing,” the Birmingham Mail quoted the witness as saying. “Horrible little b*****ds in the park had attacked and stripped him. Parents of the little hoodrats need to come and collect their disgusting children and teach them how to behave.

A GROOMING gang plied vulnerable young girls with booze and drugs so they could use them as "objects to abuse at will", a court heard today. The nine men and one woman are accused of luring the four girls into associating with older men at parties where they would be used as sexual "commodities".

The prosecution told the court the defendants used threats and violence to control the young girls and also force them into sexual activity against their will.

The jury heard some of the offences, including trafficking and attempted rape, happened in vehicles which had been driven to remote locations.

Sometimes the victims would be sexually assaulted by complete strangers, who remain unidentified to this day, the court heard.

The court heard the mother of one victim "tried desperately" to stop her daughter going out but was "failed" by the inaction of the police and social services.

Mr Wright said: "The girls targeted by those men were children and the men knew that and they did not care about it for a moment.

"These men cared only for themselves and viewed these girls as objects to be used and abused at will.”
