A South Carolina teen is accused of raping a 16-year-old girl at his home while his friends banged on the door to ask for a “turn,” according to authorities.
Joshua Allen Hughes, 17, was charged with criminal sexual conduct and pointing and presenting a firearm in connection to the June 6 incident at a Myrtle Beach residence, news station WPDE reported.
The girl told police that she talked to Hughes on Snapchat before he picked her up with two other boys in his car.
When they arrived at the home, she reportedly went upstairs with Hughes, who began kissing her. The teen girl claimed she told him that she didn’t want to have sex but he proceeded to anyway, according to police.
From outside the room, several other boys allegedly “began to bang and yell… telling [Hughes] to let them in so they could have a turn,” the police report stated.
The teen girl said that when she tried to escape, the other guests “pointed firearms at her and began to taunt her about the incident,” according to officials.
Hughes was arrested and booked Tuesday at J. Reuben Long Detention Center. He was released to home detention on $15,615 bond, according to court records.
