Detectives in Colorado have used profiles posted on networking site MySpace to identify six suspects accused of a brutal rape and robbery.

The victim, who has not been named, first met the men through MySpace. They subsequently met for a party.

Detective Ali Bartley told Associated Press: "At some point, the victim was no longer aware of what was happening, and she was sexually assaulted." Bartley said: "Primarily, we pulled up her friends list. It helped us identify some of the players."

Six men, aged between 18 and 20, were arrested late last month and one is still being sought. They are being charged with various offences ranging from rape to sexual assualt and robbery.

Police told AP the attack left blood in almost every room in the house. Hearings will be held 6 April.
