Bronx Teens Accused Of Sexually Assaulting Male Classmate

hazingThree high-school students in the Bronx have been arrested for abusing a fellow member of the track team “with ongoing sexual assault and threats of rape,” according to the New York Anti-Violence Project.

A series of sexually violent hazing rituals are alleged to have taken place at the acclaimed Bronx High School of Science starting in December—when one of the three assailants (right) told their male victim, “You need a good fingering, you freshman,” and violated him through his clothes.

In January, another purportedly demanded the victim touch him sexually and threatened rape if he refused. The victim did refuse—and was pinned down and sexually assaulted.

The suspects, all under 18, have been charged as adults with “forcible touching, assault, hazing in the second degree and harassment.” (Their names have been cited in numerous press reports, but we’re choosing not to list them here.)
The three pleaded not guilty at their arraignment and will return to court on Friday.

    What the fuck? Are kids using hazing as an excuse to rape other kids now?

  • Spike

    WTF . . Queerty is choosing to not publish their names yet who are the three kids in the pic? The lesbians must me in charge today.

  • Eric Auerbach

    @Spike: Spike, those are the photos of the accused kids. The CBS story that’s linked to here shows theirs photos and names (which is pretty f-ed up, if you ask me).

    I really sincerely hope that those pictures are not the UNDERAGED boys who are accused of this crime. While I think what they’ve been accused of is terrible, I can’t imagine the purpose of showing their faces in this article when:

    1.) You chose not to identify their names but will show their faces and identify their school, which effectively, goes against the anonymity that you alluded to by withholding their names.

    2.). They are underaged


    3.). They have not been convicted of a crime yet.

    Uh… isn’t this the basis for many a gay-porn site?

  • Justinian

    @Daveliam: It does not matter if they under age once
    charged as adults that under age crap is thrown out the window.

  • kevininbuffalo

    @IzzyLuna: Yes this is the basis for many a Gay web site.
    But you’re not suppose to mention that.

  • Chad Hunt

    @kevininbuffalo: @IzzyLuna: That has to be one of the most idiotic things I have heard on here. About as dumb as if I were to say, gee whiz many a str8 porn sites are about women getting raped so whats the big deal.


    How terrible! Hazing is a much bigger concern than most people think. I never played sports growing up, so I don’t have much personal experience with it. I’ve just never understood why teammates would want to humiliate / hurt each other as a form of initiation. It just doesn’t make sense.

    I find it a strange aspect of the American judicial system that minors can be tried as adults. Either you are underage or you are not. If they were the ones being victimized they would be never be treated as adults. It’s like you are an adult or not and adult as it suits the whims of the courts. Very odd.

  • Chad Hunt

    @Evji108: I couldn’t agree more. I find it disgusting that a juvenile can ever be tried as an adult.

  • Cee

    Something similar happened to me in Junior High.
    I was pinned down in the locker room while one guy dry humped me.

    The boy that did it was hot though. I just pretended not to like it.
    Seriously though. These young boys today are taking extreme measures just to fuck around with other boys. This is what happens to young boys with repressed homosexual desires.
    They do stupid shit like this. Blame society.

    As far as I understand, New York is the only state that automatically classifies 16-year-olds as adults in the eyes of the court. So, there is no legal issue surrounding the release of their names or publication of the photos.

  • Raquel Santiago


    Only if they can be charged as adults, that has not yet been determined. Some will probably enter a plea and either got off as minors etc etc etc. The courts have to determine that they will be charged as adults.

    @Evji108: …
    some states adult enough to have 14
    some states you cannot have gay sex until 18

    not an adult consume alcohol until 21…

  • Dakotahgeo

    Give the three smartasses 6 months in jail and let their new friend, Bubba, teach them about sex education the “hard way.”! Disgusting bastards, and they’re not even of age!!!

  • tidalpool

    If you can engage in sex, however vague, and enjoy humiliating another thru sexual conquest, you are No minor. You can and should be tried as an adult……
