HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) - Five South Florida teens - two females and three males - are facing charges after authorities say they participated in the brutal beating and rape of another teenage girl.
Police say the girls, ages 15 and 16, invited a 16-year-old South Broward High School student to a Hollywood home Friday evening and then began to beat her until she agreed to have sex with a 19-year-old man at the home. Two other young men, ages 17 and 18, also reportedly participated in the attack.
The Miami Heraldreports that the rape was recorded on one of the teenagers' cell phones.
The two girls were each charged with felony battery. The males were all charged with felony sexual assault, kidnapping and false imprisonment.
The victim remains hospitalized.
