South Bay men accused of raping female student during spring break in Miami

Spring break rape case
Three South Bay men have been booked in connection with the rape of a female student on spring break in Miami, according to a KTLA report.

The woman alleged that the three men held her down and took turns raping her in their hotel room at the Fontainebleau in South Beach, the station said, citing a police affidavit.

"They were kind of taking turns on me," the victim was quoted as telling police.  "Somebody let my leg go, and I kicked him in the chest, and he backed up, and the other guy let go of my arm and they all started laughing at me."

KTLA said the men have been identified as Paul Thorington, 22, of Lomita, Anthony Albano, 23, of Rancho Palos Verdes and Ray Joseph Laranjo, 23, of Torrance.

The men were booked on charges in Miami Dade County of sexual battery involving multiple offenders. They have been released on $50,000 bail each.

If these three lads were either Mexican or Black, I wonder what would be the comments per minute average?

what nobody to say bad things about their race? if it was border brothers this comments would be full. so do not hold back now. say it like it is, don't be shy !

MAn oh MAn !!! sping break is no excuse to loose your mind.

lovely, so in addition to this article about rape, there is a victoria secret's ad with a girl dancing around on the right side in her underwear. horrible irony? perhaps the key ad words that include dancing girls not be paired with article about sexual violence?

(if you don't see it, try refreshing the page)
