A 14-year-old girl said her attackers were four Chestnut Ridge Middle School students who sneaked into her home through a window and locked her in a bedroom, with two pinning her down and one standing guard as the fourth raped her.
In an exclusive interview Tuesday with The Journal News, she said she escaped after kicking the rapist in the groin, but the boys, three of them age 13 and the other 12, returned the next day for more, targeting her and a 12-year-old girl. It wasn’t until after three days of alleged sexual assaults that the older girl told her parents, prompting a call to police and the arrest Saturday of all four boys on felony sex charges.
“I was scared my parents might yell at me or do something against the boys,” the 14-year-old said in explaining why she didn’t tell her parents sooner. “Finally, my friend told me that if I didn’t tell my parents, she would come over and tell them herself.”
