UPDATE=> Two ‘Middle Eastern’ Immigrant Boys Arrested for Brutal Rape of 5 Year Old Girl at Idaho Apartment Complex
Police are investigating a reported sexual assault of a 5 year-old girl near the Fawnbrook Apartments in Twin Falls, Idaho earlier this month.
Residents said a young girl was raped by Muslim youths at the complex. The assault was reportedly filmed by the youths.
The story made national headlines on mostly conservative websites.
Community members attended the City Council meeting on Monday night and lashed out at the city council for hiding the brutal assault.
Several council members lashed out at citizens who voiced their concerns at the weekly meeting.
Two boys from ‘Middle Eastern’ immigrant families were arrested for rape of the 5 year-old girl at the Idaho apartment complex.
The Idaho Statesmen reported:
Residents said the Council should have released more information more quickly or expressed sympathy for the girl’s family, while others criticized Islam, refugee resettlement, the media or Prosecuting Attorney Grant Loebs.
“We need to know what’s going on with this case,” said Davis Odell.
Odell said people don’t need to know the names of the boys accused — the two boys in custody are 10 and 14, respectively, and the case has been sealed — but that the city should be transparent.
“We need to understand what the implications are of this,” she said.
Vice Mayor Suzanne Hawkins, who presided over the meeting, said the City Council should have done a better job of communicating with people, but that the situation was new for them too and that they were learning as well.
Two boys from Middle Eastern immigrant families are in custody in relation to a sexual assault on a 5-year-old girl that, authorities say, happened at the Fawnbrook Apartments on June 2. Several people came to the City Council a week ago calling on city officials to release more information.
Police and Loebs’ office were saying little last week, but the story blew up over the weekend after the boys were taken into custody. Many anti-refugee resettlement and anti-Islamic blogs picked up on it, and some incorrectly reported that the boys were Syrian refugees or made claims about other details on the attack that authorities have denied.
“The nation of Islam has declared global jihad on us,” Vicky Davis of Twin Falls told the City Council. “And Obama, this administration, is bringing them in as fast as he possibly can.”
“They’re on your head, your head, your head, yours, yours,” she said as she pointed at each Council member.
