Two girls, both 15, 'raped at Australian holiday resort' after meeting three men walking along beach on New Year's Eve

THREE men have reportedly been questioned by cops over the alleged rape of two 15-year-old girls at a resort in Australia on New Year's Eve.

Cops said the men, all aged 22, crossed paths with three teen girls on the beach at Gold Coast's Surfers Paradise last night.

Two of the girls were allegedly raped and sexually assaulted at a nearby property where the men were staying, cops said.

"A 15-year-old girl has come to the concierge in a semi-naked state, in a distressed state and police were called," Acting Chief Superintendent Sheldon told ABC.

"In investigations in relation to that, it turns out that three girls, all 15, were on the beach and they met three young fellows and they went back to the room."

The girls alleged that they had been sexually assaulted and a complaint was made.

Sheldon said three people were taken into custody and he expects a 22-year-old man to be charged.

"At this stage, it looks like there will be at least one offence of rape in relation to the assault on these girls," he told ABC.

"They met on the beach and the three girls came back to the unit where the three men were staying and it's gone downhill from there basically," he said.

"I think it's been one of those alcohol events that have had a very, very serious consequence for all concerned."

The cop said the investigation into the alleged incident was ongoing.

The trio were reportedly released after more information emerged on Friday morning, according to Daily Mail Australia.
