A couple is facing multiple child sex charges after forcing a young boy to have sex with them for several years, according to police in Illinois.

Braidwood police said that they have arrested 43-year-old David Zauratsky and his girlfriend, Tabitha Ledwa, 42, after being accused of having three way sex with the 12-year-old boy.

Both suspects were charged with predatory criminal sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual abuse and criminal sexual assault.

They were booked into the Will County jail, and bail has been set at $500,000 each. A judge has ordered the couple to stay away from the boy and all children under the age of 18.

According to the criminal complaint, the couple began forcing the boy to have sex with them when he was 12 years old. When the boy refused, Zauratsky choked him until he agreed to have sex.

The abuse lasted until the boy was 15 years old. A neighbor called police to report suspicious activity in the house.
