The five teen suspects could face life in prison if convicted. The sister of one suspect is accused of having witnessed and captured the attack on her cellphone:
After seeing the footage on her cell phone -- which showed the 11-year-old naked from the waist down on top of one of the suspects -- neighbor Caprice Greene said she was confused. Greene's cell phone was used to record the incident that police say happened in Greene's home on Collinson Avenue, in the basement bedroom of her 15-year-old brother, Reginald Pope Jr. He is among the five suspects.
"I really don't understand it myself," said Greene, 17, who is listed as a witness in the case.
She told police someone swiped her camera phone off its charger and that she stumbled across the clip afterward and recognized the 11-year-old as the "little girl from down the street," according to the police report. The victim told police that Greene filmed it, police reports say. Greene told police she deleted the clip to keep from getting in trouble, according to the police report.
