Teenagers admit sex attack on 17-year-old boy in Gloucester

Two teenagers have admitted carrying out a sex attack on a 17-year-old boy in the cellar of a house in Gloucester.

One of the youths, a 16-year-old from Wiltshire, pleaded guilty to rape at Gloucester Crown Court.

He and a 17-year-old from Gloucester also admitted sexually assaulting the victim during the attack on 8 November.

The court heard the victim was forced to strip naked and cement dust was thrown in his face during the assault.

'Humiliating and degrading'

The 16-year-old pleaded guilty to orally raping the victim and the 17-year-old admitted assault causing actual bodily harm.

Judge Jamie Tabor said the victim had suffered "humiliating and degrading behaviour".

He ordered psychological reports on the youths and said he would consider naming the teenagers when they are sentenced on 11 July.

The defendants denied a series of other charges relating to the attack. These charges will be left to lie on file.
