Teens accused of using Tasers on young mom, raping her in front of sons
Three teens were arrested for breaking into the home of a young mother in Georgia — where they stunned her with Tasers, scalded her with boiling water and raped her in front of one of her sons, police said.
The woman had told officers with the Gwinnet County Police Department that she was brutally attacked soon after she walked in the front door of her apartment around 3 a.m. May 12. She said she walked into the living room and saw two men wearing dark clothes and ski masks in the kitchen, according to a police report.
Armed with Tasers, the masked suspects approached the mother and shocked her “numerous times” before pushing her in the direction of a bedroom. The woman tried to walk toward her children instead, prompting one of the suspects to throw a pot of boiling water on her. When she continued to resist, the mother was doused with another pot of boiling water, police said.
One of the suspects then forced the woman to perform oral sex after she was ordered to take off her clothes. She later told police that her younger son was in a car seat near the kitchen during the assault, while her older son — who followed her and one of the suspects into the bedroom — sat on the bed as she was raped and witnessed the “entire incident,” according to the police report, which did not indicate the age of the woman’s children.
Police on Tuesday arrested two suspects — Francisco Palencia, 17, and Josue Ramirez, 19, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Both were ordered held without bond at the Gwinnett County Detention Center.
An unidentified 15-year-old girl — who cops believe drove the depraved duo to the victim’s apartment — was also arrested in connection to the attack. All three suspects have been charged with home invasion, rape, aggravated sodomy, kidnapping, aggravated battery and cruelty to children.
