A teenage boy in South Carolina allegedly raped a girl in a bedroom while his friends, armed with guns, waiting for their "turn" outside the door, police said.
Joshua Allen Hughes, 17, was arrested and charged June 12 with third-degree criminal sexual conduct, pointing and presenting firearms at a person and possession of marijuana, according to online jail records. He was given a bond of $15,615 and is now out on home detention.
The Myrtle Beach teen was arrested after a 16-year-old girl told police that he raped her on June 6, according to WPDE in Myrtle Beach. She told police that Hughes picked her up after they chatted on Snapchat. Two teen boys in another car allegedly followed Hughes and the girl to a home. There, the girl went to a bedroom with Hughes where she said he began kissing her. She said she told him to stop but he did not, and then he allegedly raped her.
"The victim advised that she expressed to [Hughes] that the contact was unwanted, however [Hughes] proceeded," a police report stated, according to Myrtle Beach Online. "... upon removal of her clothes he began to physically penetrate her with his private parts against her own will."
During the alleged rape, three boys banged on the door and yelled for Hughes to “let them have a turn,” according to the police report. It’s unclear when the third male teen joined the two that followed Hughes and the victim in Hughes’ car.
The girl ran to the garage where the boys allegedly pointed guns at her and taunted her.
Hughes is the only one who has been arrested and identified in the incident. Police are still investigating.
