Two teen girls in Maryland have been charged for allegedly abusing an autistic boy, including forcing him to have sex with the family pet, police say.
Police said the girls knew the 16-year-old boy and used their cellphones to record the alleged abuse, which included being assaulted with a knife. The girls also allegedly coerced the boy to walk onto a partially frozen pond and when he fell through the ice, refused to help him get out.
As well, they made the boy have sex with a family pet, Sheriff Tim Cameron told the New York Daily News (external - login to view).
"The victim was forced to masturbate and then copulate with a family pet," he said. "It's beyond comprehension."
Lauren Bush, 17, has been charged as an adult with four counts of assault, soliciting a subject in the production of child pornography, false imprisonment. An unnamed 15-year-old faces the same charges, but was not charged as an adult.
