Two teenage girls were allegedly gang raped by 10 men in a suburban park after being supplied with alcohol and drugs.
Two men aged 19 and 20, who cannot be named for legal reasons, have been charged over the sickening alleged incident and are both facing 16 counts of rape and nine counts of indecent treatment of a child under 16 – along with other several other offences.
The Brisbane Magistrates Court heard eight other alleged child predators could also soon be charged.
The two 15-year-olds went to meet up with the 19-year-old accused and a 21-year-old – who is now assisting police with their investigation – at Woodridge train station in Brisbane’s south on December 28 to drink alcohol and smoke cannabis.

They then went to Karawatha Quarry where eight other males, including the 20-year-old who has been charged, were waiting in two cars.
‘There is when the acts of rape occurred between the three known offenders, as well as between the other seven persons,’ Police prosecutor Peri Cardiff told the court, the Courier Mail reported.
‘Those acts of rape I understand occurred at a park in Calamvale district after the two children had asked to be taken home.’
The two men are also facing two counts each of taking a child for immoral purposes, administering stupefying drugs anda further nine counts of assault with intent to commit rape.
Police raided the home of the 20-year-old where they identified clothing which matched CCTV footage taken on the night of the incident.
Ms Cardiff said the man was ‘more easily identifiable’ than the other alleged offenders who were all of African appearance.

Legal Aid lawyer Megan Jones said her client denies taking part in the offending but accepts he was present.
Investigators are also carrying out DNA testing on a condom which was discovered at the scene.
Magistrate Brian Kilmartin said the strength of the case against the 20-year-old was ‘extremely strong’.
‘You’ve got compelling direct evidence by the victim. She clearly identifies him by this description, the red basketball shirt guy. When the police go to his house that equipment’s in the house,’ he said.
Magistrate Kilmartin refused bail for the alleged rapist and has adjourned his case until February 22.
He also ruled the two must undertake sexually transmitted disease test orders.
The 19-year-old did not appear in court or apply for bail. He is set to go before the court on Monday.
