SAUGUS, Mass. (PIX11) — Police are searching for the third suspect accused of drugging and raping a teenage girl and posting the attack on Snapchat.

The mother of the 16-year-old victim says her daughter was attacked by three teens behind a school Sept. 3, WHDH reported.

“What they did was disgusting, it was sick, I almost lost my daughter,” the mother told WHDH. “She was barely breathing. She was found with nothing on.”

The teens allegedly drugged the girl before sexually assaulting her and fleeing the scene.

“She had fingerprints, at least two hands held down her throat. Her breasts were bruised, her whole body was ripped, shredded, broken toes,” her mom told the station.

A video of the attack was posted on Snapchat and somebody who saw the clip notified police, who looked for the girl.

The victim was found passed out in bushes underneath a tree. She was carried away from the scene because she was impaired and unable to walk, My Fox Boston reported.

She later lost consciousness and had to be revived after reaching the hospital.

Police have already arrested two of the suspects — a 17-year-old boy and 18-year-old girl. They identified the final suspect as 19-year-old Rashad Deihim, who may be attempting to flee Massachusetts. His family says they do not know where he is.

Deihim has brown hair and a skinny build. He is 5’8” to 5’11” tall and weighs between 180 and 185 pounds. He should be considered dangerous.

The 19-year-old is being sought on charges of assault with intent to rape, kidnapping, indecent assault and battery on a person age 14 or older, and posting or exhibiting a child in a sexual act.
