A woman allegedly woke up with a belt tied around her neck after being gang raped by three men who dressed her up as a soldier.
She told police she was “passed around by three men” during the alleged attack in Sydney, Australia.
It is said to have happened on Australia’s national day of remembrance, April 25.
Glenn Robinson, from Warrimoo, 75km west of Sydney, was charged with six counts of aggravated sexual assault.
The 35-year-old suspect also served in the Australian army.
It is alleged that he and a friend, 26, were drinking at The Mean Fiddler pub during the early hours of April 25 when they invited a 37-year-old woman back to a property in the suburb of Riverstone.
Police said the alleged victim told them she woke up on a couch while one of the man was still having sex with her, with a belt tied around her neck, reports the Blacktown Advocate.
She told officers she was “passed around by three men who had sex with her in multiple ways, either at the same time or individually while the others were watching”.
The woman suffered pelvic pain after the alleged incident and later attended hospital.

Magistrate James Gibson told Penrith Local Court: “At one point she was dressed up like an Anzac in a navy blue army jacket.”
Robinson’s defence lawyer said the matter of consent was the pivotal issue, but police prosecutor claimed the woman’s drunken state means she would have been unable to consent to any kind of sexual encounter.
The suspect was denied bail during the hearing and could face up to 20 years in jail if found guilty. The case is due to return to court in July.
Robinson’s lawyer requested he be placed in protective custody due to his job as a prison officer at Francis Greenway Correctional Complex, from which he has been suspended indefinitely.
Police said another man from New South Wales has been charged and a third suspect, 31, was arrested in the neighbouring state of Queensland.
