15-Year-Old Sells 7-Year-Old For Gang Rape, 27 Arrested In Complex
April 2, 2010
New Jersey (ChattahBox) – Police are investigating the brutal gang rape of a seven-year-old girl, who was “sold” by her fifteen-year-old step-sister, who allegedly stood counting her money and watching as the young child was assaulted by as many as seven men and boys.
According to police, the teen had been working as a prostitute herself, and while at a party she offered to get the child and have her passed around for sex.
The girl was told that she was not to scream or she would be killed.
It isn’t clear how many people participated in the rape, but there were at least seven, police say. They also are trying to establish how many of the dozens present saw the assault happen, and whether or not they will be charged.
In an unrelated raid that had been planned since well before the rape occurred, police arrested 27 people (most women) living in Rowan Towers.
They hope that the arrests will lead to information about the rape, and say that the officers were screaming “What happened to the little girl” as they raided the building.
Rowan Towers is a complex high rise in Trenton, New Jersey that is considered so dangerous that many refuse to even go in there. Armed police work as security guards over the place.
Police had planned the raid on anyone who has any kind of outstanding warrant, in order to make the place safer.
Of those arrested, the step-sister has been charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child.
