Brisbane AFL players in court over alleged rape

THREE men accused of being part of a group who sexually assaulted another young man with a glass bottle are set to appear in a Brisbane court.

The trio, aged 19 to 21, will face Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday charged with rape following the alleged Australia Day attack.

It’s claimed the victim was assaulted with a glass bottle while passed out and only found out about the attack after his girlfriend saw the video on Facebook.


Two of those involved are aspiring Australian Rules footballers who play for a second-tier club.

The assault allegedly occurred when the 19-year-old victim passed out in the bedroom of one of the footballers during a party in Brisbane on Australia Day.

A fourth man, aged 19, has already faced court charged with rape.
