Two men, who posed as father and son, are now behind bars after luring a 14-year-old girl from Laurel, Maryland they met on Instagram, to their home and repeatedly raped her.
Orlando Roberts, 45, is a convicted sex offender, who raped a child over a decade ago. He partnered up with Javon Henson, 19, of District Heights, Maryland and contacted the girl online and offered to lie to her mother.
According to police, the girl met the men on the photo sharing site and spoke with them on the phone. The girl then said she have to ask her foster mother for permission to hang out, and Roberts lied to the mother about his fake son’s age, because he was 19.
Court documents state that the men drove to Maryland, met the girl’s foster mother, and took the girl back to Roberts’ home on Park Place in Northwest, DC.
Roberts allegedly took her on a tour of the house and told her all this could be yours and asked her to give “Daddy” a hug.
She was then escorted to the basement where the two men raped her numerous times. She later told detectives she was scared and nervous.
When it was over, Roberts told her she couldn’t tell anyone, that this was their secret.
Police say the girl was not at fault and praised her courage in coming forward to report the crime, an act that might encourage others to report assaults.
