HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (WSVN) -- Police said a 16-year-old girl was brutally beaten and raped Friday evening by several other teens, among them two of her female friends. One of the teens even recorded the disturbing attack, according to authorities.

Nineteen-year-old Jayvon Woolfork and 18-year-old Lanel Singleton were among the five individuals taken into custody Saturday after, Hollywood Police said, they brutally beat the girl and forced her to have sex in a Hollywood home. Neighbors who did not want to be identified said they often noticed suspicious activity at the home. "There was just a lot of in-and-out. All night, during the day, there were a lot of kids with no supervision. There were no adults, mostly young people," said a neighbor.

According to authorities, the victim's 15-year-old friend Patricia Montes is the one who lured her to a house at 1632 McKinley St. in Hollywood. Once inside, Montes along with another friend, 16-year-old Erica Avery, 17-year-old Dwight Henry, Woolfork and Singleton held her against her will, repeatedly punched her, kicked her, dragged her by the hair and smashed her face into concrete. They allegedly ignored her pleas to stop until she had sex with Woolfork.

After they let her go, the 16-year-old then contacted authorities from her grandmother's residence.

Police said the victim was beaten so badly she was in and out of consciousness, had extreme swelling in both of her eyes and had blood coming out of her left ear. "They threatened her," said Hollywood Police Lt. Osvaldo Perez. "They told her if she didn't have sex with the males, they would beat her, and they did. After the beating, she was sexually assaulted, and they continued beating her."

The five teens appeared in bond court Monday for their alleged involvement. The two adult teens are being held in jail with no bond while the minors are at a juvenile detention center. They all face battery, sex assault and kidnapping charges.
