The 17-year-old son of a renowned Chinese military singer has been detained on suspicion of participating in a gang rape in Beijing only six months after he was released from a year's confinement for assault in a road-rage case, China News Service reported.

Police in Beijing said yesterday that Li Guanfeng was detained on Thursday night for allegedly participating in the gang rape of a woman last Sunday.

Li Guanfeng is the name adopted by Li Tianyi after he was released in September from a year in a youth reformation center after he and another young friend assaulted a couple after a fender-bender, according to China News Service.

Li's father, Li Shuangjiang, 74, is a famous singer with the People's Liberation Army with a rank equivalent to major general.

Police in Beijing's Haidian District said the rape victim told them that she was drinking with five people in a bar last Sunday. The men took her to a room, beat her and gang-raped her, China News Service said.

Police said they detained the men in a parking lot in Chaoyang District.

An adult found guilty of participating in gang rape can be imprisoned at least 10 years, according to the Chinese criminal law.
