MUNICH, Germany, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- Five teenagers are in custody after allegedly sexually abusing two girls, 15 and 16 years old, at a party in Munich, Germany, officials said.
Police said they are investigating whether the girls were raped at the party last week.
While they were at the party, a group of teens allegedly held the girls down, removed their clothes and sexually assaulted them, The Local.de said.
