Police: woman failed to stop rape of teen
Girl, 14, assaulted by 2 men at party, affidavit alleges
Burnet County authorities have accused a 23-year-old woman of failing to stop two men from raping a 14-year-old girl in Horseshoe Bay.
Reyna Ramirez has been charged with abandoning or endangering a child, according to a Horseshoe Bay Police Department affidavit. Ramirez was arrested Monday and taken to the Burnet County Jail, police official Megan Garcia said.
Ramirez was with the 14year-old on the night of July 4 when, according to an arrest affidavit, Anibal Escobar, 19, and Anael Martinez, 22, sexually assaulted the girl.
After watching Independence Day fireworks, the 14-year-old accompanied Ramirez to a party at the Horseshoe Bay residence of a few of Ramirez’s friends, where they drank beer, the affidavit said.
Ramirez left the girl alone with Escobar and Martinez while she went off with another man elsewhere in the house, the document said.
The 14-year-old said she became dizzy after drinking what Escobar had made for her and remembers lying on a bed as the two took turns having sex with her, the affidavit said.
She made her way to the bathroom, where the two followed her and continued to
assault her, the document said. During this time, Ramirez entered the bathroom but did not attempt to intervene, the affidavit said.
The 14-year-old then returned to the bedroom, where she said one of the two men forced her to have sex again, the affidavit said. After the incident, she locked herself in another bathroom until about 6:30 a.m., when she found Ramirez asleep with another man and told Ramirez to take her home, the affidavit said.
Ramirez did not mention anything about the events of the night, but the victim told her mother what happened, the affidavit said.
Escobar and Martinez were both charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child and arrested last week after police investigated the incident, the document said.
