It is clear that a significant number of sons of African refugees are adopting a “race"-based gangsta identity, pushing them into inevitable violent crime, including gang rape.
Family and friends of a 14 year-old girl allegedly gang-raped in a western Sydney park say they know who the perpetrators are and have pointed the finger at an African gang operating in the Blacktown area.
Police continue to hose down reports of retaliatory violence but an African youth was attacked by a group in Blacktown two weeks ago and was hospitalised with severe groin injuries. Community leaders say the attack was related to the Doonside assault last month.
Police released CCTV images of three men wanted over the alleged rape of the teenage girl.
Sought: Images of the three men police are hoping can assist with their inquiries.
The victim has told police she was walking through Bill Colbourne Reserve about 11pm on February 8 when she was assaulted by up to six men, whom she described as being of African appearance and in their early 20s.
A 16 year-old youth who goes to the same high school as the victim, turned himself in to Blacktown police days later and was charged with sexual assault and aggravated sexual assault.
He claimed to be a member of Blackdanna, a self-proclaimed ''alliance of all niggas'' in the Blacktown area who share photos of drugs, knives and graffiti online and wear black bandannas.
Police believe up to five more men were involved and they have released images of three men, one of whom is wearing a black bandanna, catching a train from Blacktown to Parramatta together in the hours after the alleged rape.
The victim's brother had previously singled out Blackdanna members as the perpetrators and claimed to know which individuals were involved.
He said he was ''keen as f---'' to take the group down and wanted them all dead for ''thinking they can run the world''.
''How would they like it if I dis it to there sister and said f--- It [sic],'' he posted online on February 28.
A young African boy responded by posting his address and taunting the brother and his friends to come fight him, saying ''get who ever you want i will blow they f---kin head of [sic]'' and ''come to doony i will get a girl to flog ya''.
Despite the online threats, Detective Inspector Mick Haddow from the Sex Crimes Squad said on Tuesday there had been no ''wall of silence'' from the community, but an ''enormous amount of support''.
He said the victim was doing very well considering her ordeal.
The youth charged over the incident has been granted conditional bail to reside with his family in Blacktown. Neighbours said they had seen groups of men staking out the house to intimidate the boy and his family, who came to Australia from Sudan 10 years ago.
Blacktown police said they were not aware of any incidents but had instructed officers to drive by the boy's house on their nightly patrols.
Sudanese community leader Deng Thiak Adut said he feared the bashing of the African youth was related to the Doonside incident.
The youth, who is known to police, has refused to co-operate.
