According to information obtained by Iltalehti, the four alleged were originally from the Middle East, and at least three of them came to Finland as asylum seekers.
Three of the detainees were born in 1992, and the fourth was born in 1977.
The alleged crime took place in the vicinity of the Central Railway Station in downtown Helsinki at the night of November 1 last year. The victim was a young woman.
