Bemidji Police have arrested a man after an 11-year-old girl told authorities that she and two other girls were tied up and raped by several men at a Bemidji home.
On Sept. 23rd, the Bemidji Sanford Hospital’s emergency department called police on an assault complaint.
According to court documents, the 11-year-old said she was with a woman who forced her to drink alcohol.
She said a bag was placed over her head, and she was taken to a home, where she was stripped… tied up between two other girls…and raped.
The girl said another girl was in a closet, while the third girl was bloody and unconscious.
Authorities arrested 22-year-old Oscar Luna. He’s charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct in Beltrami County. Luna was also arrested on a warrant from Hennepin County.
Police say several other people were identified at the scene, eleven of whom were transported by U.S. Border Patrol to be processed as illegal immigrants.
Local KVRR has more on the revolting assault.
During separate interviews, the girl told investigators she had been with Verna Fairbanks, who she called “Auntie.”
At some point, Fairbanks told the girl to get into a car. She said someone put a bag over her head and brought her to a house with four men she described as “Mexican” where she was stripped and tied up between two other girls who said the same things happened to them.
The girl said that while she was at the house, Fairbanks put a rope around her neck and forced her to drink alcohol. She also said one of the other girls who had been raped was in the closet and another was bloody and unconscious.
The girl, who rated her pain as eight out of 10, two days after the assault, said she was able to escape when another girl untied her. She said a man named “Panda” grabbed the girl who helped the 11-year-old escape and threw her down the stairs.
The girl gave investigators a description of Panda and said he was one of the men who raped her. Officers determined that 22-year-old Oscar Luna, of Mission Texas, fit the description of Panda and took him into custody.
Luna is charged with 1st degree criminal sexual conduct. The case remains under investigation.
The Bemidji Police Department released a statement on the incident.
