Two teens were arrested for allegedly holding a fellow high school student captive and raping her while a third suspect filmed the rape for hours inside of an apartment in Frederick, Maryland. The crime was reportedly committed on Sept. 1 and reported to police on Sept. 5.

Edgar Chicas-Hernandez, 17, was arrested on Sept. 12 and Victor Gonzalez-Gutierres, 19, was arrested on Sept. 13. Frederick Police say both teens are facing kidnapping, rape, sodomy, and assault charges. Chicas-Hernandez is being charged as an adult.

“The males approached her with a knife and took her to a nearby vehicle and drove her to an apartment,” said Sgt. Andrew Alcorn with the Frederick Police Department.

A third male is wanted in this crime, and investigators say the victim could not identify him because his face was covered.

“It’s pretty shocking and heartbreaking because I have a daughter,” said Diana Gomez, who lives near the area where it happened.

According to a spokesperson with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), an immigration detainer was filed against Gonzalez-Gutierres.

The ICE statement below states:

ICE encountered Victor Antonio Gonzalez-Gutierres at the Frederick County Adult Detention Center April 24 after his arrest on local charges and issued him a notice to appear in immigration court. Gonzalez-Gutierres posted immigration bond April 27. ICE has lodged an immigration detainer with Frederick County after his most recent arrest on criminal charges.
ICE lodges detainers on aliens who have been arrested on local criminal charges when the agency has probable cause to believe an alien is removable from the United States. These detainers serve as a legally-authorized request, upon which a law enforcement agency may rely, to continue to maintain custody of an alien for up to 48 hours so that ICE may assume custody for removal purposes. Pursuant to ICE policy, all ICE detainers are submitted with an accompanying administrative arrest warrant or warrant of removal depending upon the circumstances of the individual case.

The victim, who's identity is not being revealed for her personal safety, knows Chicas-Hernandez and Gutierres because they all attended the same high school, according to Frederick Police.

According to authorities, the victim was opening the door to her home, when the three suspect hit her, pulled her hair, took her to a car, and drove her to a Frederick area apartment.

Investigators say the victim was held for several hours and raped by Chicas-Hernandez and Gutierres while the third suspect filmed the attack.

The victim was driven back to her home and released, according to police. Police say the suspects threatened her with "additional harm" if she reported the incident to authorities.

Frederick Police also report that messages via a social media site were sent referring to and planning the attack before and after the crime by someone known to the female.

“It’s happening a lot more in cases now where they’re using social media—Instagram, Snapchat, these kind of social media apps—not necessarily to plan out attacks but to talk about crimes that they are committing,” said Alcorn.

According to court documents, the acquaintance repeatedly denied any involvement in what happened. The acquaintance has not been charged.

An investigation continues as police say they're searching for the third suspect in this crime.
