Yesterday, Richmond police released a recording of the 911 call made on October 24 by 16-year-old Margarita Vargas, who reported the now infamous Richmond High School gang rape.
In the call, Vargas -- who had the decency to make the call after a 16-year-old girl was beaten, robbed and raped by 10 men over a two-and-a-half-hour period during a Richmond High School homecoming dance -- tells the dispatcher that "a naked girl could be found behind the dumpsters at the school." She goes on to point out that no one wanted to call the cops.
Six suspects have been arrested in the gang rape so far: Marcelles James Peter, 17, Ari Abdallah Morales, 16, Cody Ray Smith, 15, Elvis Torrentes, 21, Manuel Ortega, 19, and Jose Carlos Montano, 18. The rape victim, it's now being reported, was a friend of one of her attackers.
Neither Richmond High School principal Julio Franco nor any of the assistant principals -- who were responsible for the the homecoming dance's lack of security, which eventually led to the gang rape -- have yet to resign.
