4 Men Arrested for Allegedly Raping American Student in Costa Rica

COSTA RICA - Four men suspected of raping a young American woman visiting Costa Rica have been arrested.

The men were arrested in a small town in northern Costa Rica on Tuesday.

They were taken into the custody of the Costa Rica's judicial investigation police and will be handed to the town's prosecutor's office for questioning.

According to local media, the American woman was assaulted over the weekend as she was headed back to her hotel from a bar.

Before she made it to her hotel, a group of men reportedly grabbed her off the street and raped her in a field near the bar and the town's public park.

Local media report the woman is 19-years-old, was traveling from Wisconsin, and was visiting Costa Rica with a group of students from the US.
