Jose Montano, 17, and Henry Sanchez, 18 are both freshman at Rockville High School in Washington, D.C. Both just arrived in this country from Central America. And, Thursday, both were charged with the rape of a 14-year-old girl, in the bathroom of their high school.
Friday, the two suspects appeared before a judge in a Rockville County courthouse. They were both denied bail.
Authorities say the rape happened inside the school bathroom, reports The Washington Post. 17-year-old Montano forced the teen girl into the bathroom. Police affidavits say that he and Sanchez then took turns raping her in a bathroom stall, repeatedly. She cried out for help as the assault continued.
18-year-old Sanchez is currently going through deporting proceedings. However, ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) can’t comment on the minor’s immigration status.
Both came to America just a couple of months ago. Sanchez will soon be deported back to Guatemala. Montano is originally from El Salvador.
The Daily Caller reports:
Sanchez and Montano are both also freshmen despite being ages 18 and 17, respectively. The incident comes a month after an illegal immigrant teen was captured after allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl near D.C.
