A 15-year-old girl was allegedly gang-raped following her own birthday party by at least 10 men after she left with an 18-year-old man accused of drugging her.

The horrifying incident is said to have taken place in Rosario, Argentina, in the early hours of December 13.

An unnamed 18-year-old man who reportedly knew the girl and lived near her home is said to have arrived at the party later in the evening.

He allegedly gave her something to drink which appeared to be alcohol he had brought along himself before leaving with her, according to local reports.

An eyewitness claims she saw the 18-year-old suspect help the girl as they left together but that she appeared to have difficulty walking.

Party guests started looking for the girl after they noticed she was missing and later found her wandering in the street near her home a number of hours later.

Local media reports that the 15-year-old girl was found disoriented and covered in blood.

She is reported to have then told those who found her that she was raped by 10 men before fainting.

The teen was rushed to the Eva Perón Hospital where doctors reportedly found her injuries to be compatible with a violent sex attack.

Dr Jorge Kilstenin said the girl underwent an operation due to her "considerable genital injuries" and that she had received two blood transfusions, Todo Noticias reports.

"It is evident there was a situation of sexual violence," Dr Kilstenin said, adding that the victim remains in hospital.

According to the newspaper, the girl's mother told local broadcaster LT8: "We were celebrating her birthday with family and friends. He put something in her drink and took her out of my house.

"He wasn't invited, nor was he her boyfriend."

She claimed her daughter was drugged when she found her covered in blood in the street.

"If I didn't get her to hospital, she would have died in my arms from all the things they did to her," she said.

She added: "I'm not going to stop until justice is done."

According to Pagina 12, Ramiro Gonzalez Raggio, head of the city's Sexual Crimes Unit, said he is confident at least five people were involved in the gruesome attack.

"We can confirm with reliable evidence that five people participated," he told the newspaper.

The girl reportedly told psychologists she briefly remembers one suspect on top of her and also claims to have heard the mum of one of the suspects saying: "They are going to report you for what you have done."

While police are investigating claims that the victim was drugged before she was raped, local reports say that detectives believe the girl collapsed due to the amount of alcohol she drank at the party.

The suspects could face 20 years in prison, according to Infobae.

It is also reported that the main suspect's house was set on fire by neighbours during protests after the attack, which may have destroyed key evidence in the case.
