One of four people accused of drugging and raping teenage girls at a Brisbane party will stand trial on five charges.
Richard Trieu Quoc Huu Nguyen, 21, was arrested last year along with two men and a 16-year-old boy for the alleged gang rape.
Queensland Police allege Nguyen, the other two men – then aged 24 and 21 – and the teen invited three girls to a Toowong party in Brisbane’s inner-west in December 2020.
The girls were given cannabis and alcohol before they were sexually assaulted multiple times, police will allege.
A police investigation was launched in late 2020, culminating in the arrests of the quartet on a string of offences in April last year with Nguyen initially facing 14 charges.
After a committal hearing on Monday, Nguyen will stand trial on five charges – including two counts each of rape and stupefying.
The District Court trial’s date is yet to be finalised.Jump to next article
