A teenage gang of two girls and three boys have been accused of raping and beating a 16-year-old girl so badly she broke bones in her face and bled from her ear.
The victim was allegedly set upon when she visited a friend’s house in Hollywood on Friday night.
Police claim she was raped by one of the accused, 19-year-old Jayvon Woolfork, while she was held down by Lanel Singleton, 18, and three minors – a 17-year-old male, 15-year-old female and a 14-year-old girl.
The victim claimed she was kicked, thrown down stairs and had her face smashed on concrete, breaking bones near both her eyes.
Hollywood Police told NBC 6 they were able to identify all five of the teenagers allegedly involved because one of the accused took video of the fight and sexual assault on their cell phone.
Woolfork and Singleton were jailed without bond when they appeared in court yesterday, dressed in jailhouse scrubs with their wrists handcuffed behind their backs, for the first hearing in their case.
According to the Sun Sentinel, Broward County Judge John Hurley said: ‘This 16-year-old woman, both of her eyes were closed from being beaten, she had blood coming from one of her ears.
‘The court is concerned for the safety of this 16-year-old alleged victim.’
