A U.K. woman describes how she was gang-raped by five "foreign" men after she left her house to pick up food.

Michelle Pavey, 30, from Radstock, near Bath, said she was jeered at and propositioned for sex by a group of men who were parked in a silver Mondeo when she went to her local KFC at 4 p.m., the Daily Mail reports.

She was reportedly wearing tracksuit bottoms and a jacket over her pajamas when the car pulled beside her and she was snatched. The attackers allegedly tore off her clothes, held her down and assaulted her.

"I didn't have a clue what they were saying but then one phrase came very clear through the cacophony of voices," Pavey said, according to the Daily Mail.

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

"'$14 for all of us?' he yelled in English. '$14 for sex?'"

Pavey told the men to leave her alone, but before she knew it, they had pulled her inside their vehicle and took her to a park where they raped her.

"Pain tore through me as the first man climbed on top of me and brutally raped me,” she said.

"I shouted and screamed but nobody heard me. The gang were like a pack of wolves, egging each other on as the second man unzipped his trousers and forced himself on me."

By the time the third man had climbed on top of her, Pavey had given up hope.

"Adrenaline had been coursing through my veins but now, as I lay motionless, I realized how cold it was," she recalled.

"But I couldn't move. I was badly bruised and sore and emotionally, I just couldn't think. I couldn't get my head around what had just happened.

"For half an hour, I lay on the cold grass before I pulled myself up. The monsters had taken my phone, jacket and trousers -- but they'd left my pajama bottoms, so I pulled them back on."

Pavey eventually made her way back home to her boyfriend Gareth, according to The Sun. Gareth called the cops and she was later taken in for tests. One of her attackers, Ahadullah Khughiani, a 19-year-old Afghan asylum seeker, was arrested and jailed for the attack. Police believed the rest of the attackers had fled the country.

In 2010, Pavey had to face Khughiani in court, and he was jailed for eight years. He was recently deported.

"The sick gang hadn't used condoms and their DNA was all over me," Pavey said. "In the early hours I was sent home and I sunk into a hot bath. But no matter how hard I scrubbed, I couldn't wash myself clean.

"I felt their grasping hands all over me and for months and months afterwards, despite countless baths and showers, I felt dirty."
