Girl, 14, says boys asked for sex and stole her cellphone

Posted by John de Leon

 — From Times staff reporter Christine Clarridge:

A 14-year-old Garfield High School student called police last week to report that four boys took her cellphone after she refused to give them oral sex or money, according to a Seattle police report.

According to the March 19 report, the girl said she was standing on the second floor directly across from the library when the four 15- and 16-year-old boys approached her and asked her for money or sex. When she refused, they grabbed her cellphone and took it into the boys’ restroom. When she followed them in to retrieve the phone, they boys again made lewd requests.

The girl refused again and the boys left the restroom with her cellphone. She followed them out and continued to try to get her phone.

One of the boys eventually reached into her pocket, took $10, a lip balm and kept the phone. The boys then left the area and the girl told them that she would call her mother and the police.

School officials told police that surveillance cameras were on when the incident occurred and that the boys would be contacted by administration when they returned to school on Monday.

  1. Thats all that that happened? The school autorities did not look at the tape and identify the perps and then call the police to pick them up??!!??
    We live in a racist containment zone!! Where is the outrage!

  2. Instead of letting go with your usual barrage of hysteria-ridden cliches, you would have seen that, at the time of the report, they were going to do just what you suggested.

    Reading. It really does make all the difference.
