Police said they had strong evidence against the suspects, including a gun, a knife, and one of the victim's phones.
The Russian women told police they noticed one of the perpetrator's wore an object around his stomach - police believe it to be this amulet -- supposedly a good luck charm.
All three suspects admitted their guilt, with one of the accused apologising to the victims, and another saying that he had not intended to commit rape.
Police said investigators identified one of the suspects by tracing his vehicle on CCTV, the two others were brought to police attention during an investigation into another case.
