A gang of six teenagers have been arrested after they kidnapped and abused two middle schoolers, imprisoning them naked in order to sell them to clients, and torturing them on film to ensure their obedience.
Previously the gang captured other girls, forcing them to have sex with men and making millions of won in the process.
Using an Internet chat site, a gang of four boys, aged between 19 and 21, and two 19-year-old girls lured two 15-year-old middle school girls to a rendezvous.
Upon meeting the girls, two of the boys forced the girls into a car at knife point, imprisoning them and threatening their lives if they refused to prostitute themselves. They also attempted to have their way with the girls.
The teenage gang confined the two girls at a motel in Gimpo, Gyeonggi Province, forcing them to strip naked. One of the female gang members reportedly said “My hands hurt from hitting them”; her response was to make the girls hit one another for her.
The gang intimidated another 13-year-old girl they had previously captured into filming the action with a cell phone. The captive schoolgirls were told that the footage would be spread if they failed to cooperate, or ran away.
However, the two 15-year-olds did manage to escape, and true to their word the gang uploaded the video to the Internet.
Outraged Internet users soon alerted police, who used the video to track down the gang members. The video itself was quickly removed.
The gang is suspected of having perpetrated similar crimes in the past, apparently pimping three other girls over 60 times and making five million won ($3,340) between last October and November.
Net users are calling for an example to made of them to dissuade others from similar predation.
