Man Accused Of Gang-Raping 14-Year Old For Six Days

Police are searching for a number of men who have been accused of holding a 14-year-old Connecticut girl against her will and gang-raping her for six days.

The teen told authorities that a man who went by the name "Wookie" held her against her will in a recording studio for six days in April, and gang-raped her along with his friends, according to KTLA.

Police made an arrest when Miguel Pagan, 20, admitted that he is sometimes called "Wookie." Pagan said that he had picked up the young girl in New Britain, Connecticut, and admitted to having sex with the underage girl.

Pagan also is reported to have had images on his phone of the victim and the recording studio.

According to the girl, Pagan and his friends held a knife to her throat as well as threatening her with a gun -- she also said the man cut her neck and stomach. She added that Pagan rubbed a powder on her mouth that police identified as the drug Molly, and forced her to wash down the drug with alcohol.

The 14-year-old said she tried more than once to escape out a window, but her captors prevented her from leaving.

She said that the men told her to "run a train," a slang term for one woman having sex with a number of men, one after the other.

Pagan has been charged with human trafficking, kidnapping with a firearm, unlawful restraint, aggravated sexual assault, and two counts of risk of injury to a minor by sexual contact, WVIT reports. Police have yet to identify the others involved in the case, whom the teen said she had only heard referred to by their nicknames.

Pagan's Facebook messages show an exchange with a woman that authorities believe is his mother. She told him in the messages to stop what he was doing so that he would not face arrest for rape. "Use condoms," she also told him. "No evidence."

The girl finally got out on April 13, according to the Daily Mail, after a family friend of Pagan's convinced him to release her. Pagan dropped the girl off at a McDonald's and the friend picked her up and took her to a Rite Aid, where she called the police.

Investigators said that they are using records from Pagan's cell phone and social media to put together what happened.

"Your cellphone is your daily biographer," said Police Captain Thomas Steck. "So when we have them, we use them."

"We're processing evidence obtained [that has] been sent to the state police lab," Steck added. "We also have digital evidence that we're handling on our end."
