New York, April 13: No one intervened or reported to the police while a woman was being gang-raped like “wild animals preying” in broad daylight on a crowded public beach in Florida, a local official was quoted as saying. Now, about a month after the assault, two college students have been arrested in neighbouring Alabama state and charged in the incident. Authorities said they were looking for a third person seen in the video that authorities stumbled upon during a separate shooting investigation. “This is happening in broad daylight with hundreds of people seeing and hearing what is happening, and they are more concerned about spilling their beer than somebody being raped,” Sheriff Frank McKeithen said over the weekend while announcing the arrest at a press conference posted on Facebook. As of Sunday, there have been no public protests in the US or editorials in major media over the incident that took place around March 10 in Pama City in Florida state during the mid-semester Spring college holidays. The incident involving college students puts renewed focus on rampant sex assaults on college campuses across the US. (IANS)
