Five suspects have been arrested in the brutal gang rape of a 15-year-old boy in Hopkinsville, Kentucky that left the victim with a punctured colon and injured bladder, LGBT Weekly reports.
The attack happened at a house party on October 12 and was captured on video then shared via Snapchat. Authorities are not yet sure if the footage was also shared online.
Sam Miller, 18, Dayton Ross Jones, 20, and Tyler Riess Perry, 19, along with two other young men, both aged 17, have all been arrested and charged in connection with the rape that left the unnamed victim in critical condition and rocked the small town of Hopkinsville.
Miller is the most recent person to be arrested. He’s been charged him with sodomy, first degree; promoting a minor in a sex performance; use of a minor in a sex performance; distribution of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor. His bond is set at $1 million.
Police have not released many details about the incident, or a possible motive, but they did say the victim knew his attackers.
“We haven’t uncovered any kind of premeditated plans,” Christian County sheriff’s Capt. Chris Miller told media.
The 15-year-old spent several days in intensive care at Gateway Medical Center in Clarksville, TN before returning home on Sunday. He is expected to make a full recovery.
Authorities say they are still interviewing people and that more arrests are possible.
