Officials in Boise are strongly denying rumors that 3 Syrian refugees have gang raped a young girl near Twin Falls at knifepoint. The report comes from anti-refugee activists that are spreading the story with social media and conspiracy-oriented websites according to news reports.

Twin Falls County Prosecutor Grant Loebs says that no gang rape of a girl with or without a knife happened with Syrian refugees. Loebs did say the rumors could come from charges that have been filed involving young children at a laundry room at a Twin Falls apartment building. Details of that case are sealed because all involved are minors and their identities are protected.
