3 High School Teenagers Arrested For Allegedly Raping 3 Young Boys at School-Sponsored Sports Camp

Three teenagers were arrested on Friday for allegedly raping three high school freshmen at a school-sponsored sports camp in Western Massachusetts.

Galileo Mondol, 17, and two unidentified 16-year-olds, all juniors at Somerville High School, are accused of entering a cabin and sexually assaulting three males, according to the Boston Globe.

“These are terrible allegations. I’m disturbed and appalled that they may have happened,” said Somerville Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone, who was at the camp coaching.

“The incident goes far beyond hazing. This is rape,’’ he added.

All six boys are reportedly members of the school soccer team. The allegations were first reported to the athletic department at Somerville High School on Tuesday, ultimately resulting in an investigation leading to the arrest of the three teenagers.

Mondol’s attorney, however, maintains his client is innocent.

Superintendent Tony Pierantozzi spoke at a news conference, saying he was stunned by what allegedly happened.

“All of us, frankly, are horrified at these allegations,” Pierantozzi said. “We will ensure to the best of our ability that everyone and anyone who needs support will have it.”

Curtatone and Pierantozzi also issued a joint statement Friday expressing further dismay at the incident.

“We are disturbed and appalled that these crimes may have taken place and our thoughts and concerns are with the victims and their families,” the statement said. “Our student-athletes are taught to be leaders in our community and they represent the highest and best values that our school and our community hold.”

“We would like to thank the members of the soccer team for their compassionate support of the victims and their courage in coming forward to assist authorities with the investigation,” it added.

161 students were enrolled at the camp with 19 adult supervisors.

I guess this is what happens when kids don't receive discipline and parents think whatever they do is so cute and funny.  Some could be victims of molestation themselves, but I highly doubt all three involved in one incident were all victims themselves.

Exactly!

The root of the problem is discipline! These kids nowadays (and some younger adults) don't know a thing about personal responsibility, respect, or decency. It's disgusting! Instead of discipline this is a society of excuses, and diagnosis's. I'm tired of people 'wondering' what the problem is, then coming into a post like this and quoting someone like you or I and saying discipline isn't the problem...it's the same people too just watch.

I also doubt all 3 were victims of sexual abuse but for hs boys to rape other boys I'd guess they're pretty fucked in the head from something not that it's an excuse I hope they get some serious jail time and that the victims get the help they're gonna need to live with this

How does stuff like this even happen? Like....what, why? I am 1000% against rape of anyone... if these kids are guilty I hope they are charged as adults. They didnt think they get caught? they did it at freaking camp...talk about entitlement issues.

Since rape is about control and humiliation, not usually sex, I don't think that is a leap we can make.

That's terrible! If they are guilty, I hope they receive a fittig punishment and not just a "boys will be boys" slap on the wrist.
