The world is truly a sick place these days. Four men were arrested, indicted by a grand jury for several felony sexual offenses after a video was posted of them having sex with two girls. One of the girls was just 12 years old, the other girl’s age is unknown.
The video was discovered when a teacher of one of the victims at Centennial Middle School discovered the video on Facebook and notified school officials.
The video was eventually taken down but not before many of the victims’ school mates had seen it online.
Allegedly, the men filmed the video at a house party in Portland, Oregon and uploaded the video to YouTube and Facebook.
The school contacted police and they arrested Cedrell Washington, 20 and Deshawn Rogers, 22 in May. Nicholas Clisby, 23 and Terry Scott, 18 were arrested on June 6 after police got tips from the public.
The charges against the four men include “involuntary sex,” sodomy, sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a minor.
Facebook and YouTube have pulled the video from their sites.
Police reported that one of the men was a member of a local Portland gang called the “Unthank Park Hustlers.” Police noted that child trafficking has increased among gangs as a way to earn money.
This girl is really in my thoughts and prayers. Being raped is traumatic enough but having your classmates watch that assault to take place just adds insult to injury.
On the next page, watch the girl’s classmates explain how they came across the video and how the police ended up catching the four men.
