I’m sorry but this shit has got to stop. Who are these animals who care nothing about the life and dignity of another human being? What is wrong with men? I am so disgusted and heartbroken I cannot find the words.
RICHMOND — A 15-year-old girl was sexually assaulted Friday after being abducted at gunpoint by a group of men as she walked along a Richmond street, police said, fewer than two miles from the site of a gang-rape of a teen in October that stung the city.
The girl was walking alone about 5 p.m. when she was approached on Cutting Boulevard near Stege Avenue. Four men in a black Buick pulled alongside the girl, said Richmond police Sgt. Bisa French, before one of the men got out and forced the girl into the vehicle. The girl was threatened with a handgun, the sergeant said.
The victim was taken to an unknown residence, where she was sexually assaulted by two of the men from the car, French said. She was then brought back to the car and driven to Contra Costa College, where she was left at a bus stop.
A San Pablo police officer found the girl at the college about midnight. She was reported to be in good condition and did not need to be hospitalized after the assault, French said.
The suspects are described as four males in their late teens to early 20s. One of the suspects has long dreadlocks and the word “money” tattooed on the side of his neck. No arrests have been made.
“This is a tragic event that obviously mirrors what happened at Richmond High,” French said. “We’re doing our best to get to the bottom of this and put these suspects in custody.”
Friday’s sexual assault came just days after Richmond police made a public plea for help in finding a seventh suspect in the gang-rape of a 16-year-old girl on the Richmond High School campus Oct. 24. The attack polarized the community, leading to national media attention and calls for safer campuses.
Six suspects have been arrested in that assault and are scheduled to return to court Thursday to have a preliminary hearing date set.
Richmond police say John Crane, 43, participated in the October assault and have been searching for him for several weeks before asking the public for assistance.
Crane is considered armed and dangerous. Police ask anyone who identifies the suspect to immediately call 911
There has been news that the rape victim in this case has recanted her story. I am not going to pass judgement until I know the entire truth but for now this is the latest on this case:
