Wisconsin Gang Rape: Teens Accused Of Raping Runaway Allegedly Posted Video Of Their Brutal Assault On Facebook

Three Wisconsin teens are behind bars after police say they brutally raped a 15-year-old girl, and instigators believe they have a smoking gun after finding video of the assault that one of the suspects reportedly posted on Facebook.

Last week, 17-year-old Gregory Wagner was arrested and charged as an adult for his part in the gang rape of the teenage runaway. Police say he took off the teen’s clothes and helped two other teens rape her.

Two other 15-year-old boys have also been charged for the assault, which took place May 29. Police say they met the girl at a skate park and invited her back to one of their homes, then gave her a spiked drink that made her woozy.

“They’ll call it purple drank, lean, or dirty sprite and it’s promethazine, which is a cough syrup and they mix it with the sprite and it causes the effect of extreme drowsiness — especially in this case, a young child not knowing she was drinking it, it had obvious effects on her,” said Jessica Johnson with the West Allis Police Department.

Court documents said the girl felt her legs turn to “jello,” and she then awoke inside of a garage, where the group of teens were taking off her clothes and taking turns raping her.

This week, police are releasing new evidence of the Wisconsin gang rape, claiming that the boys recorded evidence of the assault and posted it online. The New York Daily News reported the following.

“A third boy put his hands around the girl’s neck as she screamed about seeing a ‘bright light,’ which she suspected was from a camera, police said.

“The girl was left bleeding. She was able to call a friend for a ride home.

“She was right about a camera rolling as one of the boys posted the video online, police said.”

Police said they were very familiar with Wagner and the other teens arrested, noting that they have been in quite a bit of trouble in the past.

“These kids we’ve had an eye on for awhile — involved in many types of activity. When the names came up of who was involved, we can’t say we were surprised at all,” Johnson said.

But police say they have strong evidence against the group thanks to the video of the gang rape.

“The video had surfaced and we were able to capture the video. It was posted on a social media,” Johnson said.

The Wisconson gang rape case has now moved to court. Gregory Wagner appeared before a judge this week, pleading not guilty to the rape charges. He faces up to 80 years in prison if convicted.
