SAUGUS (CBS) — A man and woman have been found guilty of raping a drunk and drugged 16-year-old girl in the woods outside a Saugus elementary school in September 2014 while another teen posted video of the assault on Snapchat.
Rashad Deihim, 21, and Kailyn “KK” Bonia, 20, were found guilty of assault with intent to rape, indecent assault and battery on a person 14 or older, and kidnapping.
Deihim was also found guilty of posing a child in a state of nudity. Bonia was found not guilty on that charge.
Last week, the victim testified, telling the court she remembered waking up nude and confused.
“I remember saying, like, ‘stop taking pictures of me,’ like I was naked and I was getting flashes. I remember saying like ‘stop, I don’t understand what’s going on,’” she told the court.’
Among those watching the assault on Snapchat was teenager Syndee Enos, who took the witness stand last Wednesday. She said she knew the teens in the video, and that she saw the victim being restrained.
She recognized Bonia’s blue hair.
“She was holding her down…almost in a headlock,” said Enos. “She was kind of wiggling around trying to get out of it.”
Screenshots from the Snapchat video were shown to jurors during the trial.
Enos spoke on the phone with the teen who was taking the video, found out where they were, and had her parents call police who met the group in the woods.
The teenager who took the video of the assault, Tim Cyckowski, already pleaded guilty. His father also pleaded guilty to misleading police.
Deihim and Bonia are scheduled to be sentenced at 9 a.m. on September 6.
