POLICE in the US are hunting a gang who have raped two women while forcing their boyfriends to watch the attack at gunpoint.
The two separate attacks occurred in the US city of Detroit.
In an attack last Thursday, six men cornered a young couple before ordering them to a secluded spot at gunpoint at around 10pm.
The gang took the pairs’ clothing, before forcing the 22-year-old man to watch as they sexually assaulted his 21-year-old girlfriend.
Members of the gang then fled the scene on foot.
Witnesses told local media that the couple ran into a nearby shop to raise the alarm.
The most recent attack occurred at around 2am on Friday morning, just hours after the first.
A similar scene unfolded involving a 19-year-old woman and a 21-year-old man.
Police have released composite sketches of three of the suspects being sought.
Investigators are trying to establish whether the attacks are linked to a similar attack which occurred earlier this month.
