Ten Men Accused of Cheering, Filming Rape of 13-Year-Old Girl

KTBC: Two Austin men have been charged in connection with the alleged gang rape of a 13-year-old female.

"I think it's really sick. It's a lot of kids in this area, a lot of kids," said Shaneequa Jupiter, who has two kids living with her at the Avalon Palms Apartments in the 9300 block of Northgate Boulevard. "I have a boy and a girl."

Her daughter is the same age as the 13 year-old victim, who tells police she was sexually assaulted by 10 to 13 men at apartment 292, which overlooks the pool.

Austin police reports show on June 29, the 13 year-old girl ran away from the Settlement Home, a transitional living facility that also provides foster care.

She was approached by three Hispanic men in a white car near the intersection of Payton Gin Road and Galewood Drive, and then brought to the Avalon Palms Apartments.

Two men have been arrested, police say for their involvement, 24 year-old Juan Lozano Ortega and 26-year-old Edgar Gerardo Guzman Perez.

The teen victim tells police she was taken inside an apartment, where Ortega forced himself on her as the other men cheered him on, recording the assault on their cell phones. All the men took turns having sex with her against her will. A forensic exam revealed injuries consistent with her claims.
