An 18-year-old woman on her way home from a party in the town of Arlöv, in southern Sweden, was allegedly pinned down behind a bush and gang raped by five men, according to Aftonbladet.

“It was a full-on gang rape,” said a police spokesman.

A woman who was witness to the incident called police at 1 a.m. on Thursday morning, but the men were gone when police arrived.

The woman was taken to the hospital in shock but no other serious injuries. It is not known whether the woman knew any of the five attackers.

“We are really hoping that we can get these guys,” said the spokesman. “As soon as the woman feels better we hope to get more information from her.”
