UPDATE: LOS ANGELES COUNTY, CA – FIVE MUSLIM MEN RAPE 15-YEAR-OLD GIRL
On July 12, 2017, a 15-year-old girl was brutally and viciously raped by five Muslim men while walking home from school. She was pulled into an alleyway and sexually assaulted repeatedly. This trauma has left her permanently physically harmed as well as emotionally scarred to a point where she hasn’t been able to speak a word.
She had met all of her attackers previously, having spent time socializing and doing drugs with them. All of these men are over 21 years old. Three of them do not speak any English.
The victim of this attack is still hospitalized, recovering from serious life threatening injuries. Standard operating procedure in the medical industry is to report violent crime to the police – but the victim and her family have as of yet declined to pursue a criminal investigation.
We face a growing immigration crisis. There is lack of information on who is coming into our country. Americans cannot afford to ignore this threat to our safety any longer. It’s up to us, the people, to stand up — and be the eyes and ears of what is going on.
We will be following up on this story as more information is discovered by our investigative team.
Note: A previous version of this article had incorrectly stated that Bell PD was investigating and that three of the attackers were in custody. The communication between my source and the victim’s family is strained, leading to misinformation. As of right now, it looks like the perpetrators of this heinous crime are still at large.
