Teens accused of gang rape attack

‘Two teenagers were accused of gang raping a woman and forcing her 12-year-old son to join in the attack, then beating him and pouring cleaning solution into his eyes.

Authorities allege Avion Lawson, 14, and Nathan Walker, 16, were among a group of about 10 masked suspects who forced their way into the woman’s apartment in a crime-ridden housing project the night of June 18. [..]

“Any rape case is horrible but this takes it to another level, something you can’t think of even in your worst dreams,” police spokesman Ted White said.

According to the police report, a man knocked on the woman’s door at about 9 p.m. and told her he had a flat tire. The mother and son, whom police have not identified, went outside and were ambushed by a group of gun-wielding suspects.’

    They are legal Haitian immigrants who were temporarily living in the project. The mother is educated and they are practicing Catholics, described as good, decent people. They kept to themselves and chose not to associate with the “hip-hop” element. This may be why they were targeted for attack by the perpetrators, all described as black male teenagers.

    A fund has been established at St. Ann’s parish, the victims’ church, to help them to move and get counseling.

    This sexual assault upon the mother-child bond is unimaginable, yet this mother’s faith is strong; there is hope for healing here.
