3:42 pm
go, i start my shift in the morning, there's been a suspected abduction and possibly a sexual assault of a young female and the information that we had, let us to believe that it could be in one of the parks, in banks, down senior constable. danny mccarty is lebanese, it's trillion. he's born and bred in south with sydney. gold at punch bowl boys high in 2008 new comfortable with less than a year on the 4th. and nothing prepares him for what he's about to find me. i'm walking through this park and i can say it's got tissues on the, on the ground. and then i noticed an old gentleman why
3:43 pm
caucasian mile and he's hunched either something and he seems to be distressed. i can say young came along the ground so i don't know what was happening so i'm really can hold him to keep skipping more from from the young girl. but then i realize it is it's her father. so unfortunately message was the father is found his daughter 1st and it was clear that had been a sexual assault. it was a very, very, very traumatic experience. very, very hard thing to say that later on, information came out that it was part of a number of gang groups that have happened in our city. i was very, very upset, very, very sad. and it was to me, one of the most deplorable, actually you can even to commit on someone else and just thinking what that go would have been going through at the time is just her in the us now being and that

3:46 pm
a right to do that. when the media storm wraps name at crudely mohammed future wife is a teenager in high school. it was very scary. i think a lot of families became fee for their daughters. my carmen, the person, me thinking, i'm never going to marry a lebanese move from god because if that's what they liked, and that's disgusting. the young women still just teenagers. every live there degrading ordeal in the courtroom. hearing again and again, the horrifying crime committed against them. in all, they were 4 victims, 3 separate attacks in several locations in sidney south waived. the daily telegraph in particular, finds the victims and gets them to repeat allegations about the woods that the assailants used against them. one of the victims said she was referred to as an all the peak and was told by one of the ripest. i'm going to
