    ACWORTH, Ga. -- Police say they've arrested three young boys on charges they kidnapped and raped an 11-year-old girl in the woods near an Acworth apartment complex. Police say the boys -- who are 8 and 9 years old -- are in a Cobb County youth detention center but could face adult criminal charges.
    "Reportedly two 9-year-old boys and one 8-year-old boy took the girl into the woods against her will where she was raped," said Capt. Wayne Bennard of the Acworth Police Department.
    Police reports show the girl went to authorities Saturday for the alleged attack, which she says happened Thursday.
    The victim told police they had been playing outside the West Ridge Apartments before the attack.
    She told her mother the boys forced her into the woods after threatening her with a rope.
    The girl told her mother about the alleged attack on Saturday.
    "When she started telling me I didn't know how to react," said the victim's mother. "I was shocked, I didn't expect it."
    "It's unbelievable they're starting at such a young age now," she added. You would think something like that at 14, 13; maybe a teenager, but their ages is really bothering me."
    The suspects are being held at the Cobb County Youth Detention Center.
    "The three boys have been charged with crimes ranging from rape, sexual assault, kidnapping and false imprisonment," said Bennard. "The reaction is dismay."
    The father of one of the suspects told WSB-TV Channel 2 Action News his son denies any rape happened.
    "Word had got back to her parents what she did and she changed her story around and said she was raped," said Brandon LeBlanc. "That's when they took her to the hospital and get rape kit and that's why they interrogating all these boys on these charges."
    Prosecutors had not received the case report from police on Monday, nor had they decided whether to try the suspects as adults.
    "That decision hasn't been made," said Kathy Watkins, a spokeswoman for the Cobb County District Attorney's office. She had no further comment.
    Acworth, which sits 30 miles northwest of Atlanta along the shores of Lake Allatoona, is a town of about 17,000.
    "This wouldn't be normal anywhere, but especially not Acworth," Dennard said.
    The suspects are scheduled to appear at a hearing at 2 p.m. at the Cobb County Juvenile Court, Dennard said.

  2. "Word had got back to her parents what she did and she changed her story around and said she was raped," said Brandon LeBlanc. "That's when they took her to the hospital and get rape kit and that's why they interrogating all these boys on these charges."

    And the game of blame the victim begins... How sad it is being said about an 11-year-old girl.
     
  3. That is really really disturbing.

    What is happening to people these days?!
     
  4. I ask my self this alot. Sometimes I have no hope for humanity. It's scary.
     
  5. That's insane. I don't remember knowing much about sex when I was 8 or 9, what's going on in today's society.
     
  6. I wonder how these parents feel when they find out their son has just raped someone... I think that might bhe grounds for disowning my child.
     
  7. my thoughts exactly.
    it didn't say if she was raped by only one of the boys or by all of them, but how probable is it that an 11-year-old girl would agree to have sex with three 8-9 year-old boys? :s
     
  8. Wth are kids learning these days? That's insane!
     
  9. The rape kit can tell whether the girl was penetrated or not, correct?

    I assume then those 3 boys couldn't deny anymore.

    I don't remember thinking about sex when I was that age.

    I feel sorry for the girl and her parents. I couldn't image what it's like for the mom to find out that her daughter has been raped.
     
  10. what?!!! I didn't know kids that age can do "that"
     
  11. What has the world come to.
     
  12. Unbelievable. I didn't even know how sex really worked at that age. I wonder how the boys even know what rape is or where they got that idea. It's a sad society that we live in.
     
  13. Those kids obviously have issues. Their families are most likely really fcuked up.
     
  14. How disturbing is this story!! Unreal.........I'm speechless.
     
  15. i read somewhere that the girl was telling her friends about the "experience"...but anyways, they are all kids, they shouldnt even know about things like these.
