Charges over alleged sexual assault

FIVE people have been charged over the sexual assault of a woman who had to be hospitalised after she was allegedly lured to an abandoned home and repeatedly attacked earlier this year.

On the night of May 12, police were called to an abandoned home in Sydney's west where a woman had been assaulted.

A 41-year-old woman was taken to the Nepean Hospital for treatment.

Police will allege the woman had met her 35-year-old female friend at a local club before being driven to the home where she was repeatedly sexually assaulted by her friend's son and his three friends.

The accused woman, aged 35, and four teenage boys, aged between 14 and 18, were charged with sex related offences.

All five will front court again next month.
