Remember when the refugee invasion of Europe began? Shortly after this happened to towns across Europe, the incidences of “taharrush” began to take hold. One specific example happened on New Years Eve in  Cologne, Germany. Taharrush is the swarming of a female victim who is then sexually assaulted. It has come to America….


The practice is only carried out in public and almost always at demonstrations or large public gatherings where the attackers find safety in numbers and disorder.
The phenomenon first came to the attention of the Western world when South African reporter Lara Logan, working for CBS, was set upon by a large group of men while reporting on celebrations in Tahrir Square, Egypt, in 2011.
Logan recounted her ordeal in Egypt several months later on a 60 Minutes broadcast, describing how the baying crowd ‘raped me with their hands’.

The 44-year-old revealed terrifying details of the 40 minute-long February attack in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, including how she became separated from members of her crew after someone in the frenzied 200-strong crowd shouted ‘Let’s take her pants off.’
She said: ‘Suddenly, before I even know what’s happening, I feel hands grabbing my breasts, grabbing my crotch, grabbing me from behind. I mean, and it’s not one person and then it stops, it’s like one person and another person and another person.


Seven men were arrested and accused of inappropriately touching several young girls on Memorial Day at Golfland Sunsplash water park in Roseville, California police said.

At least one victim was under 14 years old.

Sunsplash officials received reports of several men touching girls on Monday, police said. After children and family reported the inappropriate behavior, Golfland Sunsplash security separated the victims and kept the suspects together in a group before police arrived.

Witness statements, in conjunction with Sunsplash security personnel, led officers to have probable cause to arrest the seven men on multiple charges, Roseville police said.

The suspects have been identified as:

Gursharanpal Banga, 34

Manpreet Singh Dhillon, 26

Lakhveer Singh Gill, 30

Baljinder Singh Khaira, 38

Balwinder Singh Malhi, 32

Dharampal Singh, 21

Harpreet Singh Talwar, 18

“It appears that the individuals worked in a coordinated fashion to get a young victim near them or around them and then they proceeded to inappropriately touch the victim,” said Rob Baquera, with the Roseville Police Department. “The kids involved in this situation reported it to on-site security and on-site security immediately reported it to the police department. That’s how we were able to apprehend these individuals.”

Steve Rodgers, general manager with Golfland Sunsplash, said the men were doing other abnormal behavior before their arrests.

“These guys were, I think they were, acting up because they were getting saved in all the pools,” Rodgers said. “I don’t know if they could swim. They acted like they couldn’t swim.”


Sunsplash officials released the following statement in response to the arrests:

“We at Roseville Golfland Sunsplash take allegations of this nature very seriously. We are committed to providing a safe environment for all of our patrons. We contacted the authorities immediately and will fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies investigating this matter. We are unable to discuss any details involving any ongoing investigations.”

Baquera credits the actions of the water park and victims for the arrests.

“It was swift thinking by these young ladies involved in this situation to report it to security,” Baquera said. “We always recommend if you see something or something seems inappropriate, make sure you report it to appropriate personnel.”

The seven men were booked on charges of committing lewd and lascivious acts with children under the age of 14 and conspiracy to commit a crime, police said.
