Armed fugitive sought in brutal videotaped rape of 16-year-old girl posted on Snapchat
Two Massachusetts teens have been arrested and a third is being sought in the brutal rape of a teenage girl that was recorded and posted on Snapchat.
The 16-year-old girl said she has no memory of what happened Sept. 3 when she was allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted by three teens behind a Saugus elementary school, reported WHDH-TV.
“What they did was disgusting, it was sick, (and) I almost lost my daughter,” her mother said. “She was barely breathing she was found with nothing on.”
Police said the assault was videotaped and shared on Snapchat, a social networking service that shows images or videos for a short time before they disappear.
“She had fingerprints — at least two hands held down by her throat, her breasts were bruised, her whole body was ripped, (and) shredded, (with) broken toes,” her mother said.
A friend recognized the victim in the Snapchat video and notified the police, authorities said.
The video evidence led police to the girl, who was found unconscious in some bushes and had to be carried from the scene.
The girl was hospitalized and had to be revived after losing consciousness, reported WFXT-TV.
Police have arrested a 17-year-boy and 18-year-old woman in connection with the attack.
A third suspect, 19-year-old Rashad Deihim, remains at large.
Deihim was charged with assault with intent to rape, kidnapping, indecent assault and battery on a person 14 or older, and posing or exhibiting a child in a sexual act.
Police believe he is armed and dangerous.
Deihim’s girlfriend, Kailyn Bonia, pleaded not guilty to rape, indecent assault and battery on a person 14 or over, and kidnapping.
The third suspect was charged as a juvenile with dissemination of child porn and assault to rape.
