The father of the 16-year-old California girl who was brutally gang-raped by as many as 20 men told a jury Tuesday about the horrifying moment he realized his child had been assaulted.

He recounted how he received a vulgar call from his daughter’s cell phone from one of her attackers who boasted how good she was at sex. The dad raced to the school and was soon approached by a police officer who called him by his name.

‘When he addressed me (by my name), I started to buckle because I had not given my name,” the father said.
