MECHANICSVILLE, MD – Officials said two teen girls are facing charges after allegedly forcing a boy with autism to perform sex acts, some including animals, and recording it on their cell phones.
Police said the two girls, ages 17 and 15, admitted they “assaulted the 16-year-old boy with a knife on multiple occasions.”
“His parents refer to him as (having) been diagnosed autistic,” Sgt. Cara Grumbles said. “Some of the sexual acts involved animals. It’s awful.”
Records also state the girls kicked the teen in the groin and dragged him by his hair.
Officials said the girls also got him to walk on a partially frozen pond where he fell through several times; each time making him climb out himself.
CNN reported detectives found videos on the girls’ phones.
Prosecutors charged 17-year-old Lauren A. Bush as an adult.
The 15-year-old girl was charged as a juvenile so police didn’t release her name.
Officials said each girl is facing charges for first-degree assault, child pornography and false imprisonment.
