Six people, including blind man, rape imbecile



A blind man and five others raped a 26-year-old mentally handicapped woman. They enlisted the help of a 14-year-old school student, who lured the woman with the promise of a cell phone if she followed her home. The six men bound and gagged her and took turns raping her.

When the victim began to scream, four men escaped through a window, but two (including the blind man) were caught and turned over to police. The other four remain at large.
