Two teenage boys have been charged with raping a 12-year-old girl in a stairwell at a rec center in Kingsessing on Monday, police said Wednesday.

The boys, ages 14 and 15, are now facing charges of rape, involuntary deviant sexual intercourse, indecent assault, simple assault and related offenses. Police said they’re still looking for two other teen boys wanted in the incident, which happened Monday night at Francis Myers Recreation Center.

At a press conference where police detailed the charges against the boys, Mayor Nutter had a message for the two suspects who remain at large: “You need to turn yourselves in immediately before we come and snatch your asses up,” Nutter said.


Cops said they know the identities of the two other boys and are working to take them into custody.
