Disabled boy abuse
LEONARDTOWN, MARYLAND- Two teens in Southern Maryland face charges for tormenting a boy with diminished mental capacity and coercing him into sexual acts that they made videos of.
Lauren Bush is 17 and faces charges as an adult. A 15-year-old will be tried as a minor.
Police say the boy's parents told them the 16-year-old is autistic.
All three attended high school together.
Officers say the girls assaulted the boy with a knife, kicked him in the groin and dragged him by his hair.
Police also say the boy was forced to walk on a partly frozen pond and when the ice gave way the girls wouldn't help him.
