KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WDAF) — A 14-year-old girl is recovering after being attacked by five boys, ages 17 and younger. The girl told police she was asleep at the home of a friend when she woke up and discovered a boy on top of her.
Police said the incident happened Thursday morning at a home near 68th and Jackson in Kansas City, Mo.
The girl told police she struggled to get the boy off of her while four others in the room told her they were going to rape her. She said the boys also burned her with incense.
“She said they ripped off her clothes and she ended up fighting back and actually was able to get out of the house and ran to a neighbor’s house,” Kansas City Police Spokesman Darrin Snapp said.
At the neighbor’s home, the girl called 911. When police arrived, the suspects tried to run away. Four were taken into custody. A fifth suspect remains at large.
One of the boys lives in the home with the girl but is not a relative. The other boys are believed to be his friends. The girl was taken to the hospital to be treated.
Charges could be filed Friday.
