Nairobi, Kenya (CNN)Kenyans marched through Nairobi on Thursday to demand justice for a teen who was allegedly gang raped, and the suspects ordered to cut grass as punishment.

The 16-year-old was allegedly dumped in a sewage ditch after the attack, local human rights groups said.

She later identified three of six suspects, who cut grass at a police station and were freed afterward, according to the groups.

Protesters made their way through downtown to the police chief‘s office to deliver a global petition demanding the arrest of the suspects. They chanted “justice for Liz” and carried placards with the same words.

Men and women waved underwear, and stuck other underwear on the gates of the police chief’s office.

Some danced, beat drums and cried.
