More arrests are likely in a rape case involving an 11-year-old girl who may have been attacked by as many as 10 men
Two arrests have been made in the Saturday attack, and officials said they have identified eight others as persons of interest. Most or all are students at either Fresno City College or Reedley College, police said.
The Fresno Bee reported that police were waiting for analysis of evidence, including DNA samples, before deciding whether to seek charges against six additional Fresno City College football players they had interviewed Sunday about the case.
The alleged victim went to an apartment complex on Saturday night to visit an acquaintance, said police spokesman Jeff Cardinale. While she was inside one of the apartments, she allegedly was sexually assaulted multiple times by several men.
The girl fled the apartment and asked for help from a couple on the street, who called police. She was taken to a hospital for examination and is now in the care of Child Protective Services.
Mackey Davis, 20, and Eddie Scott, 19, were arrested on suspicion of child molestation with a victim under 14 and oral copulation with a victim under 18. Both were being held on $100,000 bail.
Police said they are looking for a 15-year-old girl who ran away from a group home with the victim Saturday and may have witnessed the attack, the Bee reported.
