Teenagers accused of rape in Glasgow appear in court

Two teenagers have appeared in court charged with raping a 38-year-old woman in Glasgow city centre.

Emanuel Risti, 16, and a 14-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared in private at Glasgow sheriff court.

They are alleged to have abducted the woman from Dalhousie Street and raped her on Renfrew Lane, near the Pavilion Theatre, early on 11 February.

The accused, both of Glasgow, made no plea or declaration.

They were both remanded in custody and will appear again next week for full committal.

A third man is also alleged to have been involved in the crime but is currently unknown to prosecutors.
