Three more people have been arrested in connection with the gang rape and beating of a 15-year-old girl outside her high school homecoming dance in Northern California. The latest arrests include a 21-year-old man and two boys aged 16 and 17. Five people are now in custody in the attack that occurred Saturday at Richmond High School.

Police say as many as 10 people ranging in age from 15 to mid-20s attacked the girl for more than two hours at a dimly lit area near benches Saturday night. As many as two dozen people saw the rape without notifying police.

Police say the victim had left the dance and was drinking alcohol in a school courtyard with a group when she was attacked.
