Police Investigating Possible Sexual Assault Of Teen At Occupy Dallas

Updated: 10/24, 6:28 p.m.

DALLAS (CBS 11 NEWS) – Dallas Police continue to investigate whether a teenage runaway was sexually assaulted by an adult male at the Occupy Dallas encampment behind City Hall.

A source within the Dallas Police Department who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation said the girl ran away from home in Garland last month and that she is now refusing to cooperate with investigators. She initially told officers that she had sex with a man in his early twenties and had engaged in sexual activity with several other people.

Some members of the group told CBS 11 the girl identified herself as a 19-year-old and never knew she was 14.

Police were alerted after someone recognized the girl from a picture seen on a flyer asking for help locating a missing teen.

One Occupy Dallas protestor said if the allegations are true measures should be taken to ensure everyone’s safety.

“We’ll find out what the truth is and if that’s her story, that she was having sex with older men in the park, I guess we really need to watch the age group that’s coming in here and get control of that,” protestor Rich Coffman said.

Occupy Dallas organizers said they’ll implement a 10 p.m. curfew and check the identification of anyone seen walking the grounds after that time.

The girl remained in custody as police continued to investigate the allegations Monday evening.

The Occupy Dallas protest, an offshoot of a group staging a protest in New York City called Occupy Wall Street, began more than two weeks ago.

    “Some members of the group told CBS 11 they never knew the girl was 14 and that she had claimed to be 19 years old.”

    Doesn’t matter in the eyes of the law. Hey, at least some of you disheveled bums can now have “three hots and a cot”. Enjoy your free housing and food, A-HOLES!

    • Liberalism Is A Mental Disorder

      Yep. Some of them will get what they were screaming for:

      1) Free housing – jail
      2) Free food – from jail
      3) Guaranteed jobs – prepping food in the prison kitchen, or tossing salad all day long (food-related tossing or otherwise).

      LOL. I have zero sympathy for these bums and 100% disdain.

      • DaPicayune

        Yep, then they can start their own “Occupy Prison” rally!

      • by what logic, liamd?

        It’s pathetic the way some people think. “The only time we should expend public dollars on someone is when they’ve done harm to society.” It must take such a small, negative, and paranoid view of human nature to sustain that.

      • ae

        nice one inch thought there. put them in jail so your tax dollars can pay for 100% of their cost of living (45k per year per prisoner on average) instead of a bit of welfare (11k per year for a family of three on average). grow up. listen to the words of christ, help others.

      • Liberalism Is A Mental Disorder

        I don’t listen to a dead rabbi who claimed to be the Son of God. Talk about a need to grow up. By the way, Santa is fictional as well.

      • glenp

        he was a carpenter they only called him “rabbi”

        OBTW he rose from the dead so he’s not dead

      • Liberalism Is A Mental Disorder

        LOL… OK…

  • Liberalism Is A Mental Disorder

    SEXUAL ACTIVITY?! My, how innocuous. You should be ashamed of that headline, you POS at CBS11.

  • matt2717

    It’s funny to see the national media telling us that we shouldn’t think poorly of the Occupy crowd just because there’s a few crooks and cuckoos amongst them—the same media that told us we SHOULD think poorly of the tea party because of a few crooks and cuckoos amongst them.

    • Sage49

      Well said!

    • Blackcrow

      Well put

  • Mark

    The whole contrived, phony occupy movement was nothing more than an excuse to throw an extended party.
    The dregs of society pooled together in groups acting like the animals that they are and nothing more.
    Just keep in mind Obama and the dems support them!

    • Mark Levin Fan

      Big amen to that. That’s 100% true.

  • foo me

    she engaged? so what, then.

  • pompey

    …..sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl at the Occupy Dallas campsite.

    What a surprise…….. !

  • Nick

    this whole “occupy” farce is pathetic. it will probably take a murder or two before public officials decide to shut these things down. protest all you want, but that should not give people a right to camp out indefinitely.

    • randall

      Although I do not agree with what the Protesters are protesting… I do support their right to protest…and as for Camping Out… I believe we should all be camping out… In the last few years, I am starting to believe the American Indians had it right… Tribal Living is the way to fix all this BS… The Tribe is the highest authority we need… And if you have conflicts with a few surrounding Tribes, you either sit down and come to an agreement, or let War settle it… That is how governments do it, it’s just on a larger scale…

      • Vizionary

        Natives did have it right..and psycho Christians killed them off & Capitalized on everything they could..200 years later this greedy excuse for a “Democracy” is already collapsing from within…. I love it.

        Our lives are linked within so many trillions of ways. From the soil we pave over, to the planets around us…and we waste our potential fighting over Gays & Invisible Freiends for adults (God)… I hope we awaken our consciousness, show our Youth what discipline & respect for Mother Earth can do for our evolution into a real community in which our minds can be free from Material addiction, Political illusions & fear fear fear–>(America’s #3 export next to Guns & Trash)

        Occupy your mind. I don’t expect much from these protests…Though Its good to see people active as a community doing ANYTHING these days.

        One Love is I Sight. Life is hard, so lets try to judge less & listen more. People are confused & worried. History shows that not a good combo for humans…

    Democrats on Parade!!

  • MichMike

    I get she is 14 but she said she was 19. So she lies to a 20 year old about her age and he is the one that will end up going to prison? I guess everyone who is posting the guy should go to jail has asked for ID every time they have slept with someone?

    • USArmyCombatMedic

      Well, for starters, I don’t know a single 14-year old that looks 19. If you have any doubts as to older/younger than 18, you should prob just stay away. Unless you enjoy prison rape with your statutory rape.

      • OWS and OCD are losers

        My neice looked like early 20’s when she was 14 so I can see this.

      • Anon

        Courtney stodder comes to mind, she’s 17, married at 16, and looks like she’s 35…

    • Bob Oscar

      Sigh…. “she said she was 19”

      ….pardon me, but that is one of the oldest excuses for rape in the universe……if you are not sure, don’t do it for crying out loud.

      I would speculate that there are multiple “occupier” females down there who are not juveniles who would do it for as little as a drag on the next joint….and if you gave them money, they might even do some really exciting things.

    • Chris

      I’ve never seen a 14-year-old girl that didn’t at least look like she might be under age. If there’s any doubt at all, then there’s no excuse…

      • Dr. Don

        Don’t know what part of the country you are from but I have seen more than a few. Best one was a young lady that was over to our house with my daughter (a new friend) who took a liking to my 19 year old son and they set up a date for the next weekend. Everyone, my daughter included was told and believed she was 19 including me. My son found out from a mutual friend that she had just turned 15 the week prior. Needless to say the date never took place, but yes siree Chris, they are out there. If you have a kid in High School, pick him or her up one day after school and watch the students when they leave, trust me you will see a few.

      • Randall

        We have all been taught in school that girls grow up faster then boys… Both physically and emotionally… In most countries around the world, it is perfectly acceptable for a couple to have a 10 year gap in age… the Man being older than the Woman… because they are probably both on the same emotional level… But, in our Puritan society, we frown upon such matches… this young girl, was not living at home, meaning she was emotionally ready to be responsible for her own life… Figuring out how to provide for her own needs… Food, shelter, clothing, funds… That takes maturity on the level of an adult… Legally, she may have been underage to be doing what she was doing.. but on a maturity level, she was enjoying her freedoms and partaking in life… She may have been raped, we don’t know the entire story… But, the story is worded to stir emotions and sell papers… Don’t condemn a person until you talk to the victim and then form an opinion… Don’t let the News Papers form an opinion for you…

    • foo her

      the point here is that she engaged. god damn it. don’t you get it?

  • Nick

    This was a made-up story designed to end the demonstration against our masters: THE BANKS. Imagine life without a bank involved … that’s right, you can’t!

    Now the police has the perfect excuse to get ‘physical’ with people and start checking, tagging, and bagging all of the LEGAL AND PEACEFUL protesters that ‘are’ there because of one, isolated, and alleged incident. The next time some random guy that goes to your church gets convicted of drug abuse, does that give the DEA the authority to drug test the entire congregation?! Of course not!! BRING BACK FREEDOM!!!!!

    • Free Radical

      Including the freedom for the police to beat the stuffing out of these filthy hippies.

    • kbernatovich

      Are you kidding “legal and peaceful”. Where are you because you certainly are not in NY. There is rampant crime occurring daily and no one is doing a thing.

    • Blackcrow

      blah, blah, blah. So much for your idiotic comment.

    • Daisy

      “Imagine life without a bank involved … that’s right, you can’t!”

      Imagine your life w/out the computer and car (etc) your parents bought you. That would be your life w/out a bank.

  • RW

    I’ve lived in the DFW area for 20 years and most would be surprised that there is an “occupy” camp out going on here. It lseems the fleabaggers have merged with the homeless and no one even notices.

  • Jan

    What are they doing having sex in the park to begin with?

  • TexasForever

    Arrest all of them!
    These mind numbed robots are a threat to society.
    Who died and made them superior to the rest of us?
    Just like ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, we are going to ignore the laws we don’t like because these are special people. Special people my foot, these are just lazy, self-centered USEFUL IDIOTS!
    Get to work or get out of my country!

    • ZZ Toppings

      China would have mowed them all down with machine gun fire already. God love ’em.

      • TheRealKingMax

        Actually, being a fan of efficiency, I’d prefer an air strike.

        But, no matter – two more weeks, and the cold weather will separate the commies from the kiddie klowns….

    • Your Honor

      I’d like to send every one of them to an island somewhere….wrapped in heavy chains.

  • kbernatovich

    There is so much more crime and vile behavior not being reported and that is just in NY. They need to close these places down simply to be cleaned. NY is a bio hazard right now.

  • Horice Sheet

    Right Mr. Coffman…the girl is to blame. Why don’t you get copntrol of the perverts in your gruop first. Maybe because you continually break the law with your demonstrations, so any rapes, etc are the fault of the victim.

  • SD

    That has be one romantic place to have sex – in a stinking tent next to the port-o-potty

    • Chris

      What do you expect them to do? The dumpster was already occupied…

      • glenp

        now THAT was funny thanks

      • Blackcrow

        LOL excellent reply and observation.

  • spyder

    GE donated $529,855 to the Obama campaign, in return, Obama allowed them tax breaks, same with the banks that were bailed out. liberal are so blind its amazing, its actually like you are from a different reality, where facts and logic dont apply. you just walk around mindlessly like zombies.

    • Anarchos

      It’s easier for Libwasters to do that because responsibility isn’t always easy? In their case the illegal psychoactive drugs help them to achieve and maintain the mindless zombie state………

  • Armoney Washington

    Socialists and Commies do not have morals or they would not be govt parties

  • darrell

    its bad enough that things like this happen and other things like 14 year olds being run down at 2am, children wrapping cars around trees after midnight or poles even later. its in the news everyday just here locally. the biggest problem is with our society. we have allowed the liberals, mostly in the entertainment industry and big buisness guide us into thinking that our children have all the same rights and needs we as adults do. including all the little gadgets and toys. kids are not mentally, socialy or physicaly equiped to operate in the adult world and shouldnt be allowed acess to it in any form, espicially via media.
    then there is that constant “state of denial” this country suffers from. anything that happens is someone else’s fault. its all theres, none of it is mine no matter what i did or didnt do. when i find out whos fault it is im going to sue them because i can not because its the right thing to do.
