Woman wakes up with a belt tied around her neck as a former soldier and two of his mates allegedly dress her up in an army jacket and gang rape her on a couch on Anzac Day
- Former soldier is one of three men accused of alleged gang rape on Anzac Day
- Glenn Robinson, 35, charged with six counts of aggravated sexual assault
- Victim, 37, alleges she ‘woke up’ to a man having sex with her – minus consent
A prison guard who also served in the Australian army is one of three men accused of dressing a woman up as a soldier and gang raping her on Anzac Day.
Glenn Robinson, 35, from Warrimoo in the lower Blue Mountains of NSW, was charged with six counts of aggravated sexual assault in company following the alleged assault last month.
Police allege Robinson and a friend, 26, were drinking at The Mean Fiddler pub in Rouse Hill, in Sydney’s north-west, in the early hours of April 25.
The pair were said to have invited a woman, 37, back to an address in nearby Riverstone where the alleged rape took place.

The alleged victim later told police she woke up on a couch with a belt tied around her neck to choke her, with one of the men having sex with her.
The woman told officers she was ‘passed around by three men who had sex with her in multiple ways, either at the same time or individually while the others were watching’, according to the Blacktown Advocate.
‘At one point she was dressed up like an Anzac in a navy blue army jacket’, Magistrate James Gibson told the court.
The woman suffered pelvic pain after the alleged incident and later attended Blacktown Hospital, the court also heard.
Police prosecutor Adam Young opposed bail, pointing to CCTV evidence showing the woman stumbling out of the pub in an intoxicated state.
He also alleged the drunken state of the woman would have made it ‘obvious’ to the accused men she was not in a position to consent to a sexual encounter of any kind.
Robinson’s defence lawyer said the matter of consent was the pivotal issue, before requesting the accused be placed in protective custody if bail was refused due to his employment as a correctional services officer.
Robinson, who appeared by audio-visual link in court, was supported by his partner, colleagues and friends from the gallery.
He faces up to 20 years behind bars if convicted. Robinson was refused bail in Penrith Local Court on Tuesday, with the matter to return to court in July.
In a statement on Thursday morning, police confirmed another NSW man had been charged and a third man, 31, was arrested in Queensland in connection to the alleged incident.
Robinson is a correction officer from Francis Greenaway Correctional Complex, on the outskirts of Windsor in NSW.
He has been suspended from his role indefinitely.
