2 charged as adults in alleged rape

Two teenagers have now been charged as adults in the alleged gang rape of a 12-year-old girl at a roller rink in Baltimore County.

Prosecutors say 17-year-old Kadeem Santiful and 15-year-old Tracey Hawkins, both of Baltimore, face charges including first-degree rape in the attack Saturday at Skateworks in Woodlawn.

According to charging documents, the girl told police that two males grabbed her and dragged her into a storage room, where they raped her. She said a third man tried to pull a friend of hers elsewhere.

She then said the three took turns holding her down and raping her and forced her to perform sex acts on them.

Twenty-four-year-old Davon Perry of Pikesville has also been charged with rape.

how sad that even when teens are provided with recreational activities, they can still be victimized by adults and other teens.

As bad as this situation is, what was wrong with the ownership/management of the rink?
With other people's children in your facility you'd assume extra due diligence for safety and security.
A 24 year old "volunteering" at a roller rink? That didn't seem odd when it's primarily an activity for pre-teens & teens?
Can hardly wait to hear the defense attorney argue this one...
I hope all three get crushed on this.
