Two Maryland high school girls have been arrested charged with multiple charges in relation to abusing a 16 year-old autistic boy. The girls kicked him in the groin, dragged him by his hair and forcing him to perform sex acts at knifepoint, some involving a family pet. They filmed their assault on their cell phone cameras. One of the girls, 17 year-old Lauren Bush, was charged as an adult, and is currently out on bail. Her 15 year-old accomplice was charged as juvenile. The two admitted their crimes to law enforcement, and supposedly said that they didn’t know why they did it. Apparently they have done it before. Law enforcement is investigating whether the girls shared the images with others.
One doesn’t see too many stories of female on male sexual abuse in the media, but many experts believe such crimes go underreported. What do you think?
Two Maryland teenage girls were charged this week with assaulting an autistic boy and recording him on their cell phones performing sex acts, including some with animals, the St. Mary County Sheriff’s Department said Wednesday.
Authorities said the two girls, ages 17 and 15, admitted to police that they assaulted the boy with a knife on “multiple occasions.”
Lauren A. Bush, age 17, of Mechanicsville, MD, was arrested and charged as an adult with 2 counts of Assault 1st Degree, 2 counts of Assault 2nd Degree, Soliciting Subject in the Production of Child Pornography, False Imprisonment and incarcerated in the St. Mary’s County Detention Center on March 10, 2014.
“His parents refer to him as (having) been diagnosed autistic,” said Sgt. Cara Grumbles, a spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office. “Some of the sexual acts involved animals. It’s awful.”
