A British teenager who was allegedly raped and tortured by an “Asian” grooming gang was been charged with perverting the course of justice in breach of her bail terms as she made a viral Facebook post detailing the horrific scale of her abuse.
The 19-year-old from Barrow-in-Furness, Northwest England, posted images of her beatings, slash marks, bruises, cigarette burns, and her sliced thumb as she alleged she was punished by an “Asian” rape gang for failing to show to organized sex parties where she would be passed around, due to coronavirus social distancing.
She is awaiting a court hearing, according to The Daily Mail, for breaching her bail terms and was facing several counts of perverting the course of justice.
Cumbria Police released a statement concerning a 12-month ongoing investigation and the detention of the girl:
“Cumbria Constabulary can confirm that a 19-year-old woman, from Barrow-in-Furness, is subject of ongoing criminal proceedings.
“She was charged with seven counts of perverting the course of justice on 26th March 2020 and was released on bail.
“She has subsequently been arrested on 20th May for breach of her bail conditions and has been remanded in custody, court date to be notified.”
National File reported on the original Facebook post which went viral and amassed tens of thousands of engagements.
Via National File:
The girl, under the Facebook name Ellie Wiliams, went missing over the past day, only to reveal that she was bundled into a car to be taken to an address where she was to sleep with 3 “Asian” men.
Recalling her experience, she said:
‘Yesterday I was put into the back of a car, taken to an address to have sex with 3 Asian men. Afterwards I was beaten because I was in debt to these men for not attending “party’s” for over 7 weeks due to crona virus. The organisers of the party decided to beat me to teach me a lesson. They decided that I don’t learn from being battered as I’ve received beatings before but “still continuing to make the same mistakes” so they decided to try and cut my finger off! They then continued screaming in my face, waving a knife around saying they would kill me.’
Ellie later goes onto write about how the men manipulated her, plying her with drugs, in order to have their way with her, sexually.
‘These are evil yet clever men. They know how to manipulate, convince and threaten girls into staying, when they can’t they use extreme violence! I used to believe that these people loved me, I realise now that they used me for their own gain and profit. They have beaten me on multiple occasions sometimes for no reason at all. They have given me drugs to the point I was nearly addicted to herion! [sic]’
Bravely, Ellie reels off a list of abuses and injuries she suffered at the hands of her tormentors:
‘They have stripped me naked, beaten me and dumped me in the middle of nowhere with nothing, I mean nothing, no money, phone, ID, clothes, shoes, nothing! They did this once in winter we’re I got found with bad hypothermia. They have broken my ribs, many bones in my face, they have split my ear, cut my throat, attempted to cut my boobs and nipples off, they have carved words into my body, branded me with letters, they have dislocated my elbow, they have stabbed me, they have burnt me and used me as an ashtray to stump cigarettes out, they have beaten me black. I have had a bleed on the brain from a head injury, I have lost some vision in one of my eyes from being smacked so badly. Now I have had my finger cut. They have put lit petrol rags and threatening letters thru my letter box, they have followed me home, tried to drown me, strangled me and they have stalked me. They have had guns they have waved around and held to my head. They have abused me in every way possible. They have emotionally abused me calling me every name. It got to the point we’re I was being abused all the time and being hit and hurt weekly! I am incredibly lucky not to be dead already! I thought the only way I could escape this life was to marry one of them, get pregnant or kill myself.’
Cumbria’s Head of Crime and safeguarding, Det Chief Supt Dean Holden: “…I want to reassure people this is not something we had ignored or otherwise dismissed, it is something we have taken extremely seriously and we have sought an independent review to ensure that our investigation is transparent and professional.
“What I would say is, when the question is asked, “Is there an organised gang of Asian men in Barrow conducting abuse or other exploitation against individuals?”
“Our investigation has shown that has not been corroborated or otherwise evidenced.”
A robust investigation into the claims was assured.
