(Scroll down for video) Two men were arrested and charged with child rape related charges after as many as ten men gang raped a girl and recorded the attack on video, according to police reports in Texas.
Austin Police said that the men took turns sexually assaulting a 13-year-old runaway girl from Texas in an apartment. Some men were seen on video cheering on the attack after several men recorded the incident with their cell phone cameras, according to court documents released Thursday.
Authorities have charged two men in the alleged attack, which began after the girl escaped from a group home for children in Austin and got into a car with three unknown men.
Juan Lozano Ortega, 25, and Edgar Gerardo Guzman Perez, 26, were charged Wednesday with aggravated sexual assault, a felony. They were detained in the Travis County Jail on $30,000 bond each.
“All the men took turns having sex with the victim against her will, which lasted until the early hours of the morning,” the court was told.
Investigators were able to locate Ortega and Perez because one of them let the girl use his cell phone after dumping her on the street and telling her to find a place to go. The victim called her foster brother, who refused to come pick her up, but his caller ID documented the suspect’s phone number.
Doctors who examined the girl told investigators that their findings were consistent with her allegations.
