A group of seven young men allegedly trapped a 21-year-old mother in her laundry in Bendigo, Victoria and raped her as her children slept.
The men, Mohammad Zaoli, 21, Aru Gar, 19, Mohammed El Nour, 18, and Akoak Manon, 18, and three youths aged 17, 16 and 14, applied for bail in the Bendigo Magistrates' and Children's courts on Friday.
The court heard the men had travelled to Bendigo from Shepparton to go nightclubbing last Saturday night.
Police said the alleged victim had also gone out clubbing with a friend, leaving her children with a babysitter at her home in Bendigo.
As the girl was leaving the Star Bar at about 2am she met a 16-year-girl who introduced her to the group of men, the court heard.
The 16-year-old and the group of men came back to the woman's house, joining the babysitter.
Video recorded on one of the men's mobile phones shows the victim being grabbed in the kitchen as the 16-year-old tries to drag her into the laundry.
Detective Senior Constable Christopher Reed, from the Sexual Crimes Squad, said the alleged victim "can be clearly heard saying no" in the video.
Mr Gar allegedly lifted up the woman's skirt and digitally raped her as she tried to kick him away and the rest of the group laughed, the court heard.
The group took her to the laundry and Mr el Nour and the 16-year-old held her down as Mr Manon and the 17-year-old raped her.
The 16-year-old is also accused of digital rape and slapping the woman.
Police arrested the men at the woman's house after she called them from her bedroom.
Each of the men, who came to Australia as refugees from Sudan and Afghanistan, have been charged with 17 offences, including rape and assault.
