4th Teen Charged with Raping Girl, Posting Video on Facebook


A fourth Chicago teenager has been charged in the 2012 videotaped assault of a 12-year-old girl.

Cook County state's attorney spokesman Tandra Simon says aggravated criminal sexual assault charges were filed Friday against 16-year-old Dyquier Garrett. Garrett, charged as an adult, is being held in lieu of $500,000 bail. Prosecutors didn't reveal what led to Garrett's arrest.

Scandale Fritz and Justin Applewhite, both 16, and 15-year-old Kenneth Brown, arrested in May, are being held in lieu of $900,000 bond each.

According to court records, Fritz took the girl to the basement of his home and assaulted her. Fritz allegedly brought Brown and Applewhite to the basement where they assaulted her as Fritz videotaped the rapes. Fritz was identified because he turned the camera toward his face.

Court documents indicate the video was first posted on Brown's Facebook account. It was later posted on Fritz' and Applewhite's Facebook pages.
