Mountain View police arrested two 17-year-old boys and a 23-year-old man Nov. 28 in connection with the rape of a 13-year-old girl, who passersby found intoxicated at a park near the intersection of Latham Street and Escuela Avenue.
It all began when the victim, the two teens and the man met up to drink alcoholic beverages, Thompson said. The victim apparently knew all three suspects -- all of whom are in custody and are still being interviewed by investigators.
The two 17-year-old suspects have not been named, as they are juveniles. The 23-year-old was identified as Sunnyvale resident Mario Pinto.
Police received word of the incident after some passersby discovered the girl intoxicated in Castro Park.
Thompson said police are working to determine whether all three suspects forced themselves upon the girl or if some did not. The MVPD representative refrained from commenting on the case until the investigation is concluded.
Anyone with any information about these suspects or crime is encouraged to call Detective Nanez at 650-903-6356.
