Rape and robbery charges were filed against four men today in a California court room for an attack on a 15-year-old girl leaving a school dance.
19-year-old Manuel Ortega is the only suspect old enough to be identified in the crime so far. Ortega was charged with assault by force likely to produce great bodily injury and rape while acting in concert. Three minors were also charged. Two of them, 15 and 17, were charged with rape with a foreign object while acting in concert. A 16-year-old was charged with robbery and rape with a foreign object as well.
Police report that more people will be taken into custody today. According to them, at least seven men took part in the rape which lasted over two hours. Police also say some of her attackers laughed and took pictures of the incident. The unidentified girl was raped, beaten and robbed while over a dozen people stood idly by and did nothing.
The party of people that stood by and watched will likely not be prosecuted unless their actions “aided” the crime.
This case is so disturbing and disgusting! These children are sick!
