Sydney girl, 12, claims sexual assault by multiple teenage boys in park, by Ava Benny-Morrison

A 12-YEAR-OLD girl has told police she was sexually assaulted, possibly by up to five teenage boys, in bushland at a western Sydney park. …

The girl was alone when she went to meet friends at Progress Park in Auburn on September 9. She has told police she was sexually assaulted in isolated bushland ­adjacent to the park, not far from a dimly lit footpath and playground.

At the time, an Eid festival — marking the holy Islamic holiday — was in full swing in Progress Park.

Hundreds of people, including families and young children, flocked to the event that afternoon. The alleged victim emerged from the bushland and reported the ordeal to a family member.

Apart from noting the Eid Festival in the park, the article fashionably gives no clues about the alleged rapists. We are being systematically not-informed, lied to by omission.
