Two Maryland teenage girls were arrested and charged with felonies after torturing a 16-year-old autistic boy with a knife before forcing him to engage in a sex act “beyond comprehension” that the two girls filmed, St. Mary County’s Sheriff’s office charge.
Lauren Bush, 17, of Mechanicsville, Md., is being charged as an adult for masterminding the heinous, evil crime that was committed with her 15-year-old accomplice, Sheriff Tim Cameron told the New York Daily News Wednesday the “heinous” allegations in this case are some of the worst he has ever seen and have shocked the rural Maryland county.
The suspects recorded themselves assaulting their mentally challenged victim — whose name is being withheld by police — by pointing a knife to his throat, making him walk across a frozen pond and not helping when he fell in multiple times and kicking him in the groin, Cameron said.
The most grotesque part of this hideous episode was the sexual act they allegedly coerced him into performing.
“The victim was forced to masturbate and then copulate with a family pet,” he said. “It’s beyond comprehension.”
These acts occurred between December and March, he said, adding the girls knew the victim in Mechanicsville, about an hour southeast of Washington, D.C.
The victim did sustain some injuries from the suspects’ torture, Cameron said, but he did not know the extent of it.
The suspects were arrested after one suspect’s mother found the video on her daughter’s phone and alerted the school resource officer at the Chopticon High School where they both attended, Cameron said.
