A young couple from Poland were subjected to a “brutal and bestial attack” by four men suspected to be African migrants on a beach in Rimini, Italy.
The 26-year-olds were taking an evening stroll on their last night in the popular tourist spot when they were set upon by four men, Wiadomości reports.
The young man was beaten unconscious by the gang, who then subjected his partner to multiple rapes in front of him. Both were also robbed.
