Three police officers have been arrested for their alleged participation in the rape of an 18-year-old girl in an apartment in the city of Formosa.
Two officers stand accused of having raped the young girl, while the accusation against the third has not been confirmed, with investigators still seeking to establish his role in the alleged crime.
The girl, from the northern province, reported that the incident happened at around 10.30pm Saturday, according to local daily El Comercial.
She said that that was taken by one of the policemen, whom she knows personally, to a rental complex in the Divino Niño neighbourhood of the provincial capital. There, they met up with two other members of the force, one of whom then allegedly left the room.
