MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Police are searching for two men who snatched and raped a mentally challenged teenager.
The 19-year-old was leaving a hotel pool on Sycamore View when she was pulled into a room.
One man who saw her at the pool said the scene was actually a bit risque.
“She acted like it was showtime at the Apollo. We used to look out for her, try to tell her to go back to her mom’s room.”
Police say the men grabbed her as she was walking along an outdoor corridor.
“You gotta watch your children, because they’re creeps out here like that,” one hotel guest said.
While it disturbed many hotel guests, others here that night say the girl’s behavior at the pool was alarming.
Police, however, say while the girl may physically be 19, she is mentally much younger.
“They say she has the mind of a 10-year-old. She does, she’s not all there. The manager had to go get her out of the pool, shaking her boobs and her butt.”
Officers say the suspects were at the pool for several hours and left in a four-door dark green car.
People at the hotel say the men had to know the teen was unable to consent to sex, and managers say they did all they could to keep her safe.
