Teen Boys Accused of Committing Sexual Battery Against Unconscious Girl, 14, in Rancho Cucamonga
Two 15-year-old boys have been arrested after allegedly committing sexual battery against a 14-year-old girl who they forced to inhale an intoxicating agent at a Rancho Cucamonga home, local police said Monday.
The incident occurred when the young victim invited the two male teens to her residence while her mother was away on Jan. 16, the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department stated in a news release.
The juveniles proceeded to drink alcohol and inhale chlorofluorocarbon refrigerant, also known as Freon, according to police.
The substance can cause lightheadedness, tremors, convulsions and interrupt heart rhythms; inhalation of large amounts can lead to asphyxiation, hearth attack or death, police said.
The intoxicated victim passed out when the two male teens committed several acts of sexual battery against her, then searched the residence and stole multiple items.
They then forced the incapacitated victim to inhale chlorofluorocarbon refrigerant several more times. She was not believed to have suffered any long-term effects.
The 15-year-olds have been arrested for felony sexual battery, residential burglary, and administering an intoxicating agent with the intent to commit a felony, police said.
Both were booked into a juvenile hall in San Bernardino.
