(Scroll down for video) Two teenage girls were arrested and charged after abusing an autistic boy, and recording the abuse.
Lauren Bush, 17, and a 15-year-old girl of Maryland, allegedly forced the autistic boy to have sex with the dog while holding the knife at his neck.
The autistic boy, 16, who was identified as Michael, endured months of abuse at the hands of the two girls, who he called his friends.
Michael said he wants the charges against them dropped.
“It really makes me upset that my parents want the girls to be jailed because I really like them,” he said.
However, prosecutors refuse to drop the charges.
Bush was charged as an adult with assault, false imprisonment and child pornography solicitation. She faces up to 80 years in prison if convicted.
The 15 year old was charged as a juvenile. Earlier this month, she pleaded guilty to assault and displaying an obscene photograph. She remains in a juvenile detention center.
As we reported earlier, two teenage girls were arrested on child pornography and assault charges, according to police in Maryland.
The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office said that 17-year-old Lauren Bush, and a 15-year-old girl, assaulted a 16-year-old boy who has autism.
The teens recorded the assaults against the autistic victim with their cellphones. The video showed how the suspects forced the teenager to walk on a partially frozen pond, which resulted in him falling through the ice several times.
Police said that the girls refused to help the victim out of the icy water and he was forced to pull himself out. In another incident, the girls attacked him with a knife, kicked him in the groin and dragged him by the hair.
The teenagers also coerced the autistic boy to engage in a sexual act with an animal while they recorded the act. Both girls have been charged with two counts of first degree assault, two counts of second-degree assault, soliciting subject in the production of child pornography and false imprisonment.
Bush was charged as an adult. She is being held in the St. Mary’s County Detention Center. The 15- year old is being held at the Waxters Children’s Center.
