Three boys arrested for sexually assaulting girl, 12, in Brooklyn school; victim was targeted twice in same week

BROWNSVILLE, Brooklyn – A 12-year-old girl was sexually abused twice by boys who attend the same Brooklyn middle school, police said.

The boys, ranging between the ages of 12 and 14, attacked the victim on Thursday afternoon inside a basement at J.H.S. 271, according to police. At least two of the culprits also targeted the girl less than a week earlier on September 30, police said.

The NYPD said she managed to fight them off in both sexual assaults.

The middle schoolers were arrested Friday after school officials uncovered security video and phoned in their parents, The Daily News reported.

The attackers face multiple sexual assault charges in nature but police could not reveal them due to their juvenile status, according to the NYPD.
