A 43-year-old man is being charged in the disturbing gang rape of a California girl by ten men while an estimated 20 people stood idly by and watched.
43-year-old John Crane Jr. turned himself in to police Tuesday after being identified last week as a suspect in the crime of the Richmond high school student.
Police describe him as an “ex-con with a violent history.”
The update on this teen's tragedy comes just a week after another California girl recanted her story of a gang rape saying that she needed an excuse to be out late.
The young girl told police that she was forced into a car at gun point by four men before being raped by two of them.
She then called the next day and confessed the lie.
According to police however, the rape of this Richmond high school student is no joke and they have been actively trying to find the suspects involved since October.
As previously reported, the 15-year-old girl was violently beaten and raped outside of a Richmond, California high school leaving a school dance.
Police estimate as many as ten men raped the girl during the 2 ½ hour incident while 20 people stood by laughing and taking pictures.
So far police have arrested six men between the ages of 16 and 21 in connection with the crime.
They have all entered not guilty pleas.
Such a sad story...smh.
