Boy Raped Girl In Alleyway As ‘revenge’


Lacquan Weekes

A boy has been found guilty of raping a teenager in an alleyway in punishment for spreading rumours about his sister who told the victim 'snitches get stitches', Mirror UK reported.

Lacquan Weekes, the 17-year-old rapist, was egged on by his sister Aliyah Weekes, 19, and a 16-year-old girl.

He was found guilty of rape, while his sister and the 16-year-old, who stood trial alongside him at the Old Bailey, were found guilty of aiding and abetting the attack.

There were tears and wailing from the dock as the jury came back after eight hours of deliberations to find the trio guilty.

The 15-year-old victim, who cannot be identified, was made to perform a sex act on Lacquan Weekes, who is 10 days away from his 18th birthday. We are able to name him after a court order banning his identification was lifted.

There were tears and wailing from the dock as the jury came back after eight hours of deliberations to find the trio guilty.

The 15-year-old victim, who cannot be identified, was made to perform a sex act on Lacquan Weekes, who is 10 days away from his 18th birthday. We are able to name him after a court order banning his identification was lifted.

She had left home on the evening of April 29 to buy a drink and was confronted by the two females in a park in Willesden, north-west London.

Aliyah Weekes had told her 'snitches get stitches' when she accused the victim of telling secrets about her and the 16-year-old.

She also threatened to make the victim do a 'line-up' - street slang for performing sex acts on a number of people, and said: 'snitches get stitches'.

This was nine days after Aliyah Weekes, the 16-year-old girl and the victim had been involved in an attack on a different girl in a park. The 15-year-old later told police what had happened.

After the jury returned its verdicts Judge Jeremy Donne said: "It seems to me there was degradation and humiliation which went beyond the commission of the acts."

He described it as a "sustained incident" involving prolonged violence.

He said: "There is no doubt that the defendants acted together to commit the offence."

Sentencing on all three was adjourned until October 17 at the Old Bailey.
