August 16, 2009 • Daily Email Recap

Officers responding to a report of hysterical screams found an 8-year-old girl partially clothed and four boys, barely in their teens, running from an empty shed.

The boys, ages 9 to 14, face charges ranging from sexual assault to kidnapping, police said Thursday.

Authorities in Phoenix say it’s one of the most horrific cases they’ve ever seen.

All five children are refugees from the West African nation of Liberia.

Investigators said the boys lured the girl to an empty shed on July 16 under the pretense of offering her gum. The boys then held the girl down while they took turns raping her, police said.
