Three teenagers were taken into custody and charged with kidnapping and sexually assaulting a female security guard who was working security on a movie set in Conyers.
The AJC.com reports Conyers police arrested Justin Kohn, 17, of Conyers, and two 15-year-olds whose names are being withheld because they are juveniles.
Kohn is being charged as an adult. All 3 teens are charged with “armed robbery, kidnapping, false imprisonment, financial card fraud, carjacking and weapons charges” according to a report on the AJC.com website.
Police say the security guard was sitting in her BMW outside a film company around 11:30 p.m. Monday when she was approached by 2 masked men who forced her into the trunk of her car.
The men took the BMW for a joy ride before forcing her to provide her ATM card and PIN number. They then drove to a Bank of America ATM on West Avenue in Conyers, where they successfully withdrew an unknown sum of money.
The victim was driven to Johnson Park in Conyers where she was gang raped by all 3 teens at gunpoint.
Afterwards, the suspects dropped the woman off on Johnson Road. She was able to walk to a gas station on Klondike Road and call 911, according to the AJC.
Police moved quickly and diligently to apprehend the suspects in order to calm the fears of the movie industry.
