In Connecticut, officials say three teenage boys forced two 12-year-old girls to have sex with them and recorded it on a cell phone.

Two of the suspects in Bridgeport are 18 years old and the other is 17.

A mother let out anguished screams over the pain of having a son in serious trouble with the law.

Bridgeport Police have charged 18-year-old Marcus Jeanty and two friends with sexually assaulting two 12-year-old girls, and videotaping the encounters with a cell phone.

Emmanuel Jeanty denied his son's involvement.

Police first learned about the case from a counselor at Wilber Cross School.

One alleged victim told the counselor and later detectives that she was repeatedly abused during the summer months in the basement of a home.

Police say they have recovered a cell phone with the videos.

In one video, a voice can be heard saying it was "just like a homemade porno."

Investigators say the suspects threatened to show the girls' mothers the videos unless they continued to have sex with them.

Marcus Jeanty and 18-year-old Malcolm Rivera turned themselves in Monday afternoon.

17-year old Quadere White surrendered Monday night.

It's a case of alleged abuse and intimidation that has shocked even seasoned investigators.
