Dallas, Texas: A statement was released through Project Safe Childhood by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Texas concerning two men who reportedly kidnapped and raped a 14-year-old girl in October 2021.
43-year-old Lukumond Olatunji and 41-year-old Vincent Thompson were both arrested on Wednesday, January 12 and charged with production of child pornography and aiding and abetting child pornography.
They made their first appearance in court before U.S. Magistrate Judge Irma C. Ramirez later in the day.
On October 23, a 14-year-old girl identified as Jane Doe was walking home from school in Southwest Dallas wearing her school uniform. Olatunji and Thompson pulled up beside her and evidently stated something that led the girl to believe that they would drive her to her grandmother's home.
Instead, they took her to an alley where they reportedly raped her and recorded part of the assault.
Olatunji and Thompson then drove her to a motel where they rented a room and assaulted her again.
The girl managed to escape and made her way to a gas station where she called for help.
Despite the trauma she had endured, she was able to provide officers with a description of the men as well as their clothing.
"Officers immediately drove to the motel and detained Mr. Olatunji and Mr. Thompson. In an interview Mr. Olatunji identified Jane Doe as "the girl that Vincent picked up,"" the statement reads.
Thompson also identified Jane Doe as "the girl we picked up in South Dallas."
Both men admitted to raping the girl though Olatunji initially denied sexually assaulting her.
