[Zenith News=Byeon Jinhee] Choi Jong-hoon, who is accused of gang rape has been arrested.
On the 9th, the Seoul Central District Court issued an arrest warrant for Choi Jong-hoon after questioning the suspect before his arrest on charges of violating the law on the punishment of sexual crimes.
On this day, the court's head judge Song Kyung-ho said "Crime charges are almost verified and there are concerns of destruction of evidence," citing the reason for issuing the arrest warrant.
Choi Jong-hoon, along with Jung Joon-young and other members of the 'Jung Joon-young group chat’ are suspected of having sexually assaulted a woman in Hongcheon, Gangwon Province, in January and Daegu in March of 2016.
A man under investigation only known as B, whose sister is a member of a well-known girl group was also arrested.
Meanwhile, Jung Joon-young was arrested last month on charges for sharing illegally taken videos and photos with Seung-ri, Choi Jong-hoon, Lee Jong-hyun, Roy Kim, Eddie Kim and Yong Joon-hyung.
