9 charged in sexual attack on teen in St. Paul9 suspected gang members, associates charged in sexual attack on 14-year-old girl in St. Paul
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) ' Nine suspected gang members and associates have been charged in a sexual attack on a 14-year-old girl who authorities say was forced back inside an abandoned St. Paul house and raped after trying to leave a party.
The five men and four male minors face charges including conspiracy to commit first-degree sexual conduct, kidnapping someone under age 16, and committing a crime for the benefit of a gang.
Prosecutors say the girl and her friend were picked up at school last November by one of the defendants and lured to a party with suspected members of the TB22, or True Blue 22, street gang.
A criminal complaint said the girl wanted to leave but was pulled from a car and carried back inside the house and raped in a bedroom.
