2 Arrested, More Sought Over Austin Teen Gang Rape

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:08 PM CDT

Police have arrested two men and are seeking possibly eight more over the gang rape of a 13-year-old girl in North Austin.

According to the arrest affidavits, Juan Lozano Ortega (pictured left), 24, and Edgar Gerargo Guzman Perez (pictured right), 26, are both charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child, a first degree felony.

According to court documents, on the evening of June 29 the teen had run away from a home she was living at on Payton Gin Road. She was approached by a vehicle with three men inside and was given a ride to a nearby apartment.

The affidavit says seven to 10 other men were at the apartment. The girl was taken to a bedroom where she was sexually assaulted while the men recorded it with their cellphones. The affidavit says all of the men there assaulted her until early the next morning.

The girl was driven to an unknown location and told by one of the men to "find somewhere to go." She asked to use a cellphone and called her foster brother to pick her up, but he refused, according to court documents.

She was able to make it back on her own to the home on Payton Gin Road and report what happened to her, the affidavit says.

She was taken to a hospital and examined. The affidavit says there was trauma to her body consistent with the allegations.

Police say they were able to track the men down from the phone call the girl made to her foster brother. She had borrowed one of her attacker's phones and her foster brother's caller ID recorded his number.

They tracked him to an apartment that matched the description of where the girl said the attack happened, according to court documents.
