Trigger warning on the video  

Several teenage boys in Auckland, New Zealand, who call themselves “Roast Busters” have been raping drunk girls and then bragging about it on social media sites like Facebook, YouTube and Ask.fm.

According to CNN, one boy is the child of a police officer and another is “said to be the son of a Hollywood actor.”

The “Roast Busters” are believed to be around 17-18 years old or older and attended at least two high schools. They call preying on drunk girls “roasting” and explain their sexual assaults as just what the girls are “in for.” On YouTube, two boys explained, “We don’t choose the roast, the roast chooses us. … They know what we’re like; they know what they’re in for.” Activity stopped this week after it was uncovered by media site 3 News and attracted attention. Police said they have been monitoring the boasts of rape for two years, but can’t take legal action until a victim comes forward.

At least one victim has spoken publicly to the media about being raped by the “Roast Busters.”  The girl told a TV news show, “You could say I got raped. I had sex with three guys at one time.” However, this young woman hasn’t filed a complaint. Two of the young men involved in “Roast Busters” were interviewed by police, but did not admit anything they could be charged with. “The online claims themselves are not enough to warrant a prosecution,” said a chief police officer, as quoted by CNN. “They might be morally inappropriate and unacceptable to us but we have to deal with evidence that would be admissible in a court of law and we haven’t got to that stage yet.”

At least one alleged victim tried to kill herself, according to police reports.
