Five suspects, including three female teenagers, have been arrested for torturing, confining, and robbing a mentally disabled man.
Local Korean media report that select high school female student became devils by torturing a mentally disabled man with cigarette burns and boiled water.
The incident happened when a 16-year-old female high school student identified as “A” started drinking with the mentally disabled 20-year-old identified “B.” After drinking, female “A” started to convince male “B” to go to a motel together around 3:50am.
After getting to the designated motel, there were four people waiting including a 16-year-old female high school student “C,” a 17-year-old female, and two male college students. They waited until “B” fell asleep on the bed and took a picture in order to threaten the mentally disabled “B” for around 10 million won ($8,431 USD) for having sexual intercourse with a minor.
But when male “B” refused, the five suspects started torturing the man with cigarette burns and pouring boiling water all over his body for hours. When male “B” fainted, the five suspects began to discuss selling male “B’s” organs for profit. They planned on taking male “B” in a rental car to sell him to an organ trader.
However, one of the suspects, female “C” couldn’t handle the brutality of the situation and ran away to report the situation to the authorities, resulting in the arrest of the remaining four students a couple days later.
They are currently being charged with special robbery, indecent act by force, injury due to robbery, and forced confinement.
Netizens have expressed their disgust via various comments:
[+2364, -14] Teenagers are not true teenagers these days. Oh my god.. They even thought of selling organs.. Even torture is shocking… This is unbelievable. Please punish them harshly…
[+2050, -0] There needs to be an edit in special treatment against minors. Those mother f*ckers need to rot for at least 20 years.
[+1644, -9] Woah the world is coming to an end. We need to get all those suspects and make them donate their organs. Recently, there was an incident of a female high school student getting beaten to death just for looking at them. There is only one out of ten of those trash that actually changes after jail time. It is highly unlikely that they will turn for the good.
