Four teens have been arrested after torturing one of their school classmates.
The teens are ages 14-17.
The high school students allegedly lured a student into a shed where they tortured him with a series of deplorable acts.
According to police, 15-year-old Jenna Jean Montgomery lured the victim into a shed with the promise of sex and drugs. She told police her job was to act as the “bait.”
Once inside the shed, the victim was hit in the back of the head with a crowbar. The teenagers ordered the victim at gunpoint to take off his shirt. 15-year-old Blue Kalmbach then shot the victim in the hand, chest and groin with a BB gun. The BBs had to be surgically removed.
The victim was then beaten with a crow bar and forced to eat cat feces. One of the teenagers used a box cutter to carve a swastika into the boys forehead.
The victim begged to be released. After a while, the teens obliged, but only on one condition: he had to steal a skateboard and bring drugs back.
Once released, the victim sprinted to an automotive shop and called police. After an interview, police arrested the four perpetrators. The four teens were all charged with Measure 11 crimes and were arraigned in juvenile court on Tuesday.
Three of the teens will be tried in adult court, while the 14-year-old will be tried in juvenile court.
When interviewed by police, the teens said they tortured the victim because he called one of their friends gay on Facebook.
One law enforcement source spoke with Fox 25 about the teen’s confessions to the crime.
“What's really shocking about the whole thing is just how ignorant the teens were of the consequences of what they were doing," the source said. "None of them expressed any remorse; really just shock at how much trouble they were in. They didn't understand that it would be that big a deal.”
