Two Asian teenaged boys raped a 16-year-old American boy at knife-point in Sharjah and threatened to kill him if he reports them, newspapers said on Tuesday.
During hearings in court on Monday, the prosecutor demanded a tough punishment for the two - a Pakistani and an Afghan - aged 16 years.
The court was told that the two seduced the boy to a house under construction in the Al Qouz area in Sharjah and raped him.
One defendant denied the rape, saying the American came with them at his own will. The other defendant said he was not involved in the rape as he only watched the place.
Medical tests showed the victim was raped and the judge decided to lock the two defendants up until the next hearing on July 27.
