Police in Trelawny are now investigating the gang rape of a teenage girl in the community of Zion, located in Falmouth recently.
A gruesome video in which between five and seven males sexually assaulted the young lady started being circulated on various social media sites prompting an investigation.
Many who viewed the video and commented on it, have condemned the incident and have called for swift action by the authorities to apprehend and punish those responsible.
Commentators have also called on the church community to offer counselling to the rape victim.
On Friday (July 17), Head of the Trelawny police Superintendent Wilfred Campbell confirmed the incident.

He could not confirm reports that the child is mentally ill.
