BUFFALO MILLS, Pa. (WJAC) - A man and woman are facing charges after police say the woman raped a boy while the man held him down.
Police say the victim contacted police and told them he had been raped by 24-year-old Brittany Sheetz of Buffalo Mills back in December at a residence on Milligan’s Cove Road.
Police say the victim told them that Sheetz had given him alcohol and then sexually assaulted him while 36-year-old Derek Edwards held him down in a bedroom.
According to police, the victim said that two other people had walked into the room and witnessed Sheetz on top of the boy.
Police say the victim left with the two witnesses but never told them what had happened.
When police asked the boy why he didn’t come forward sooner, the victim said he told his guardian he was raped but nothing was done, according to police.
Police say Sheetz denied the allegations when questioned, saying that the victim and witnesses were being paid to make the story up by a man she had a prior relationship with.
According to online court documents, Sheetz and Edwards are being held in the Bedford County Prison after being unable to post bail.
