The Beebe Police are looking for two suspects, one white, one black, who allegedly assaulted two teens Thursday night, April 19th. The teen girls, ages 13 and 15, were walking along North Fir Street at around 8:00 p.m. when they noticed two men coming out from behind a wall at the church. The girls started running but the men caught up with the girls and forced them into a ditch. The girls were screaming. The 15-year-old was raped and the 13-year-old was physically assaulted in the middle of the neighborhood, according to Beebe Police Cpt. Eddie Cullum. The 13-year-old was able to fight off her attacker and run for help.
“No one heard any screaming. And the girls were screaming when they were being attacked,” Detective Jeremy Weeks, of the Beebe Police Department stated in his report. He said one of the girls had bite marks on her neck, scratches, and both had injuries on their legs.
Cpt. Cullum said one of the suspects is a black man over 6 ft. tall, wearing all black, including a chain hanging from his jeans. The other suspect is described as a skinny white man around 5’8”, wearing a red shirt, blue jeans, and a backwards ball cap bearing the “Monster” drink logo.
Evidence has been sent to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for testing and Beebe Police are hoping they will get a match from the DNA of the attackers.
Cpt. Cullum said that a white vehicle honked and flashed their lights which broke up the attack but the driver did not stop.
The two girls do not live on North Fir Street.
No arrests have been made.
Police are asking for any information regarding this attack by calling 882-3365.
