2 Adults, 3 Juveniles Arrested for Selling 7-Year-Old for Sex
3 Adults and 3 Juveniles Have Been Arrested After a 7-Year-Old was Sold and Gang Raped in New Jersey
Five people were arrested Saturday April 3rd after a 7-year-old girl was sold by her stepsister and gang raped at a party in an apartment on March 28th. The people arrested have not been named.
The party was at the Rowan Towers block in New Jersey and the 15-year-old stepsister went to the party with some older men. The younger girl went with her stepsister because she was concerned for the older girl's safety according to KTLA News.
The 15-year-old sold herself for money then took offers from the men to touch her younger stepsister. The touching turned to sex and police think that seven different men raped the young girl. The 15-year-old has already been charged with promoting prostitution and aggravated sexual assault among other crimes, but a 20-year-old has also been charged with having sex with the 15-year-old.
On Thursday April 1st Mayor of New Jersey Doug Palmer, said that the victim's family had been notified about the upcoming charges so that they could move out of their neighborhood.
"We made sure they got out of the area," he said Saturday afternoon, before the news conference.
The seven-year-old lives with her mother, two younger siblings and the father of the 15-year-old girl.
Police are still asking for anything with information to come forward so that they can solve the case and bring everyone to justice.
