Hollywood Teen Gang-Raped and Beaten; Suspects Face Judge

The two two teens accused of gang-raping and beating a 16-year-old girl have been ordered to jail without bond.

Jayvon Woolfork, 19, and Lanel Singleton, 18, were a part of a group of five teens arrested for being a part of the gang beating and eventual rape of the victim last Friday night.

The three others allegedly involved in the attack -- a 15-year-old girl, a 16-year-old girl, and a 17-year-old boy -- appeared in juvenile court over the weekend.

The brutal attack began when the victim was at a friend's house in the 1600 block of McKinley Street listening to music and watching television. The group approached the girl and began demanding that she have sex with Woolfork, according to police reports.

When she refused, the two teen girls attacked her and beat her. One of them smashed the girl's head against a concrete stoop and then threw her down a stairway. The victim had her clothes torn off and was dragged by her hair.

The victim reportedly begged the two girls to stop beating her, according to reports. But the girls said they wouldn't stop until she agreed to have sex with Woolfork.

The beating continued until her eyes swelled shut and she bled from her ear.

She was eventually dragged into the bedroom and held down by the others while Woolfork raped her, according to the report.

The victim was taken to Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, where she was treated for broken bones in her face and multiple bruises on her body.

The Miami Herald reports that the victim is four-foot-eight and 75 pounds and is a student at South Broward High.
