CLEVELAND, Texas - Eighteen juveniles and adults are accused of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl during a series of attacks after a lurid cell phone video circulated among a small
Texas middle school.

A search warrant affidavit obtained by several Houston media outlets says police determined the video was taken at an abandoned mobile home in Cleveland, Texas.

The girl told investigators she was raped at the home on Nov. 28.

Indictments in the case say there also were attacks on Sept. 15 and Oct. 25.

Each time, at least two individuals were involved.

The indictments say the girl was attacked by at least three people in November.

Both police and prosecutors have declined to discuss details of the case.

Thirteen adults and five juveniles have been arrested so far.
