Three teenagers—two boys, aged 17 and 19, and an 18-year-old girl—have been accused of committing rape and then sending out video of the brutal assault via Snapchat.
The alleged rapists are believed to have drugged and sexually assaulted a 16-year-old, leaving the girl badly injured, in the woods behind an elementary school in Saugua, Massachusetts earlier this month.
Shortly after the assault, video purportedly showing the attack was sent out via Snapchat—a friend of the victim’s saw it and told her father, who called the police—they managed to track down the girl, who was found naked and with lacerations and bruises all over body. She was rushed to a nearby hospital where she had to be revived after losing consciousness.
The victim’s mother spoke to WHDH about the sickening assault, demanding justice for her daughter, who is currently unable to remember anything about the attack.
“What they did was disgusting it was sick, I almost lost my daughter,” the mother said. “She was barely breathing she was found with nothing on.
"She had fingerprints, at least two hands held down by her throat. Her breasts were bruised, her whole body was ripped, shredded, broken toes.
"I want justice, I don't want this to go away, I want them to pay for what they did."
NYDaily News reports, police have arrested two of the alleged perpetrators—the 17-year-old boy, and the 18-year-old girl, Kailyn Bonia. The third suspect, Bonia’s boyfriend, Rashad Deihim, remains at large.
Bonia has pleaded not guilty to charges of assault to rape, indecent assault and battery on a person 14 or over, posing or exhibiting a child in a sexual act and kidnapping—she is currently being held in custody without bail. The unnamed 17-year-old boy is facing the same charges.
