COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Six teenagers accused of sexually assaulting a juvenile female have been arrested, the Colorado Springs Police Department said Tuesday.
The alleged victim is just 13 years old, the Gazette reported.
The assault allegedly occurred on Dec. 20.
The girl reported being sexually assaulted by “multiple males” at a home in the 4000 block of Tappan Drive, police said.
The same day, detectives arrested four suspects: 19-year-old Jacolby Williams, 18-year-old Clarence Williams, 19-year-old Tommy Williams and a 16-year-old male who was not identified because of his age.
Detectives later identified two additional suspects: 18-year-old Tyron Williams and 19-year-old James Williams. They were arrested Monday.
Police confirmed that at least some of the suspects are related, The Gazette reported.
“The victim knew at least one of the individuals and she responded back to the apartment complex, for lack of better terms, to hang out with them,” Sgt. Mark Chacon told KRDO.
The girl reported the incident immediately after it happened.
All of the suspects are being held for investigation of sexual assault, a Class 2 felony. Police expect the district attorney’s office to file additional charges, KRDO reported.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 719-444-7000, or Crime Stoppers at 719-634-7867 or 1-800-222-8477.
