Four boys between the ages of 12 and 14 have been arrested and charged with kidnapping and gang-raping a 13-year-old girl.
Kabarshenay Ellis-Pinkney, 14, Louis Miller, 13, Joseph James-Carter, also 13, and Ja’den Glover, 12, were all charged with various offences, including felony rape, kidnapping, and unlawful sexual contact.
Police said they dragged a 13-year-old girl into a home in New Castle County, Delaware, on December 11, 2018, and forcibly raped her.
After the assault, Louis and Joseph allegedly threatened the victim with a weapon, warning her not to tell anyone what happened.
Louis is also charged with one count of felony possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, one count of felony aggravated menacing, one count of misdemeanor terroristic threatening, one count of misdemeanor theft under $1,500, and one count of misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child
Police said a hearing would be held later to determine whether the suspects should be prosecuted as adults. The boys may serve less than 5 years for the rape, under Delaware law. Because all 5 are “juveniles’. This means that all four may be out of prison by their 18th birthday.
