Two men in Utah have been arrested for allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl in the back of a car while she was unconscious. That assault, according to police, was recorded on video.
The victim’s father told police his daughter began chatting with three men over Snapchat while spending the night at a friend’s house. She then snuck out to party with them. The girl told police that the three men took her to a gas station to get alcohol. From there, they went to a mall parking lot, a hookah bar, and a house party.
Leclair Dodjim, 24, and Richard Djassera, 21, have been arrested on several felony counts including aggravated kidnapping, rape, forcible sodomy and sexual exploitation of a minor, according to KUTV.
According to FOX13 Salt Lake City, the last memory the teen has is leaving the party, then being in a back seat of a car while a man kissed her. She said she told that man to stop. A video shows her in the back seat with her head hanging off the seat and outside the door, according to the report. That recording shows Dodjim and Djassera doing sexual acts to the teen, as Dodjim’s brother documents it on his cell phone.
"[Victim] appears to be unresponsive through most of the video, but does make feeble attempts to push the person on top of her off," a probable cause statement states. "It appears [Victim] is passed out and/or unconscious throughout most of the video and clearly cannot give consent to anything that is happening to her.”
Dodjim’s friend and brother call him by his nickname, “LA” while he was on top of the girl. According to FOX13, Dodjim told police he was "too drunk" so he just laid on her. He denied doing anything sexual to her.
Dodjim’s brother, Richard Mbaye Djassera, admitted to police that he recorded the assault.
"He said he thought it was funny so he recorded them having sex on his phone," police wrote in the probable cause statement.
As of now, it is unclear if the brother has been arrested.
