A mother from Saugus, Massachusetts, says her teen daughter was raped and that the horrifying incident was posted on Snapchat.
The 16-year-old girl was reportedly drugged and sexually assaulted before her alleged attackers left her alone behind a school building, reports WHDH. She says she doesn’t recall the details of what happened on Sept. 3, but that a video of the incident was recorded and uploaded to Snapchat, where it appeared for about 10 seconds before disappearing.
“Somebody noticed who it was and called the cops, and if this person didn’t call the cops my daughter wouldn’t be here right now,” the girl’s mom said.
The girl was found passed out behind the school, according to reports, and had to be carried home. Police found the fingerprints of at least two hands that held her down by her throat, they say, and her breasts were bruised, while her whole body had been “ripped” and “shredded.” She also suffered from broken toes, they say.
“What they did was disgusting, it was sick. I almost lost my daughter,” her mother said. “She was barely breathing, she was found with nothing on.”
Three people have been arrested, including a 17-year-old boy and 18-year-old girl. A third suspect, 19-year-old Rashad Deihim – who is thought to be the female suspect’s boyfriend -- is also being sought by police, but his family has told them they don’t know where he is, reports Fox 25 News.
“I want justice, I don’t want this to go away,” said the victim’s mother. “I want them to pay for what they did.”
