4, Including 2 Girls, Assist in Beating and Video Recording of Rape [update]

Disgusting. All of them need the worst punishment possible. This gleeful recording of assaults on young women has to stop and to be stopped the perpetrators need to be punished severely. If the US will not teach its boys that girls and women are humans with dignity and agency, it will have to slam punks like these against the wall with twice the force these assholes used to smash their victim into a slab of concrete.

The rape suspect, Jayvon Woolfork, 19, stood next to one of his alleged accomplices, Lanel Singleton, 18, in tan jailhouse scrubs, their wrists cuffed behind their backs, as a judge ordered them jailed without bond Monday morning.

… When Singleton, from South Broward High, was arrested, he admitted to participating in and videotaping the attack.

The three accused minors, also from South Broward High — Patricia Montes, 15, of Hollywood; Erica Avery, 16, of Coconut Creek; and Dwight Henry, 17, of North Miami Beach — will be held in juvenile detention for 21 days while state prosecutors decide whether they will be charged as adults. When Montes and Avery were picked up by police, they admitted to the beating but denied stripping the accuser of her clothes.

Montes’ cellphone, however, contained several video clips of the attack, including the forcible removal of the girl’s clothing.

According to police reports, the violent encounter occurred at about 7:30 p.m. Friday at Woolfork’s home in the 1600 block of McKinley Street. Police say Montes asked the girl to Woolfork’s home, where they listened to music and watched TV until Woolfork, Singleton, Henry and Avery joined them from another part of the home and demanded that the girl have sex with “Jay” or face a beating.

When she refused, they punched her, kicked her and dragged her by the hair into the backyard, where they pushed her down stairs and smashed her head on the concrete.

When they dragged her back inside, Henry allegedly blocked the front door and said: “If you leave, I am going to f— you up!” She was next dragged into a bedroom, where the teens stripped off her clothes and held her down while Woolfork raped her.

The report says that after the assault, the girl was allowed to leave — minus her shoes — and she made her way to her grandmother’s nearby home.

The girl’s grandmother called police Saturday morning. When they met with the girl at 7:18 a.m. Saturday, she was covered in bruises, had broken bones in her face, had “extreme swelling” of both eyes, blood coming from her left ear and was in and out of consciousness. She was taken to an emergency room.

She was unable to name or describe her attackers, but she identified Woolfork out of a photo lineup.

UPDATE: Exclusive: New Videos Released In Attack On Hollywood Teen. CBSMiami, 1/9/2014./2014.

Hollywood Police say the videos depict Ericka Avery and Patricia Montes relentlessly punching and kicking the victim while telling her that the beating will cease if she has sex with a man named Jayvon Woolfork. Last month prosecutors showed a series of videos in court of the attack from inside the house. These new videos show what occurred before the attack moved inside.

As the videos begin, the victim is on the ground being dragged on the ground and sustaining a series of blows from her attackers. Voices recorded on the videos refer to the victim having been maced. At one point, one of the females is heard asking, “Are you recording again?” before walking over to the victim and forcefully slapping her in the head.

The videos reveal that at least two young men were watching the beating. One of the men is heard saying, “They don’t like this girl.” One of the females responds, “I told you we were gonna f— somebody up.”

During a break in the attack, when the victim is trying to regain her composure, one of the women is heard saying the victim should be let go, “Just let this girl get up and go home.”

But one of the men is heard saying that the victim has to stay to perform a sex act.

In the new videos, we see one of the men refusing to allow the victim to go outside to smoke a cigarette and again demanding that she have sex with Woolfork.

The victim told police that Montes, Avery, Dwight Henry and Lanel Singleton dragged her into a room and held her down while Woolfork raped her.

Hours later at a hospital, the victim spoke to police about the attack. A detective asked her why the young women beat her and the victim said “I don’t know. I honestly don’t know.”

The victim also told police “I just don’t ever want to see them again. I mean, I thought Patricia, I thought they were my friends. And for them to do something like that, it’s just really messed up and cruel, and sick in the head.”

The victim also told police that before she left the house Ericka Avery spit on her.
