IMMOKALEE, Fla. -- Fourteen field laborers broke into an 18-year-old woman's home, dragged her across the street and then took turns raping her, investigators said.
The Collier County Sheriff's Office said the men, ranging in age from 18 to 56, dragged the woman from her home to another across the street early Saturday. She told deputies they choked her and hit her until she lost consciousness.
She said that when she awoke, one of the men was pouring alcohol in her mouth. The men then pulled off her pants and each one raped her, she said.
When they finished, the men pushed her out of the front door, the report said. She said she walked over to her landlord's house and called police. Deputies subsequently rounded up 14 men who were at the house.
Although the woman could not say for sure what role each suspect played in the attack, she was positive all 14 participated in the sexual battery.
"She couldn't pick out exactly who did what, but she could verbalize bits about what happened," sheriff's spokeswoman Kristin Adams said. "Her quick thinking made it possible for us to make the arrests."
Each man was charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment and sexual battery by multiple perpetrators. All were in jail without bond Tuesday and could face up to life in prison if convicted. Twelve of the men are from Guatemala, one from Puerto Rico and the other from Mexico.
Immokalee is in northeast Collier County between Naples and Fort Myers, and 115 miles northwest of Miami.
Coming soon to a city near you.
I'm not saying it didn't happen as she said but something doesn't sound right. I'm glad she's alive but it seems unusual that they would throw her out and stay in the house, knowing she would call LE.

All here legally, right? Funny, the article doesn't mention anything about their immigration status.
Terror can come across the border in different forms.
We will be waiting, 7.62 NATO locked and loaded.

It does smell fishy, but knew there'd be illegals (oh, did the article not mention that?) involved.
Maybe the women in their countries aren't that smart or just too scared to call police....they forgot they are dealing with American women.
did she ask them to bust up a chifferobe?
The headline should have been 'Illegal Aliens which are government failed to protect us from raped a child."
I notice that, too.
"Twelve of the men are from Guatemala, one from Puerto Rico and the other from Mexico."
If they are here illegally I hope she sues the snot out of their employer.
Maybe its time for all of the victims of crime committed by illegal immigrants to band together and file some sort of suit against Homeland Security/ICE for negligence, dereliction of duty, whatever.
It seems like nothing else is getting their attention.
They are ALL preventable crimes. Everything from shoplifting and fender benders to rape and murder.
There is also no mention of the mobile homes.
I can think of at least one alternative scenario, but it's best to allow time for for things to develop here.
Let the family exact justice. Let he community exact justice.
Yeah. It's a strange report but I was wondering that too. I hate to see people sue happy but as you say nothing else isworking right now.
Another thing to remember is that these criminals probably have the combined intelligence of a styrofoam cup. Most dirtbags are also very arrogant to the point that they feel they "deserve" whatever they're stealing or committing. Individual rapists are that sick, not to mention gangs of rapists.
They should be promptly executed, cremated, and then their ashes mixed with asphalt to fix potholes.

I'm with you. Sounds really odd.
If they were on meth or something else then it would make much more sense.
Once upon a time we dealt with this stuff using bullwhips and the gallows.....
I don't care where they are from. They are scum deserving of the death penalty!
The description of 14 farm laborers in one house is practically a guarantee of their illegal status. Those who pick the vegetables have no documentation and are generally migrants. They get paid cash by the bushel and find whatever temporary housing arrangements they can while the harvest is going on.
14 guys living in a house? Sounds really crowded to me. Must have gotten tired of doing it with each other.
Illegals should be sent a message on this crime that it is NEVER acceptable to assault and rape somebody even if it is 14 to 1. Pushishment should be swift and severe.
Paging George, paging Bush...We need to know your spin on this matter.
She is probably an illegal too and the men thought she wouldn't call the police because she would get deported. This is probably the reason not much info about her is being released.
All but one of 14 of the men listed 827 Rebecca Drive as their address.
Found this on another story
They were just celebrating diversity and multiculturalism(sarcasm)!I am sick of immigrants and that means ALL immigrants.Their cultures are stupid and moronish and simply not condusive with the American way.
Pictures of the perps. Registration may be necessary. The pictures show evil men, imo. Usually I'm a skeptic when incredulous charges are raised but these guys look guilty.
bump to your post.
A chifforobe might have been a good clue many years ago, but DNA works better today.
"Maybe its time for all of the victims of crime committed by illegal immigrants to band together and file some sort of suit against Homeland Security/ICE for negligence, dereliction of duty, whatever."
What better place start with a RICO investigation?
Who's idea is it to allow people like this into our country?
Caused by American Lawyers, and the Lawyers in Robes( Judges). Yes, you have a right to make bail. And our Supreme Lawyers ( SCOTUS) says that Illegals have all the rights that citizens do. BUT, if you are illegal, you scoot back across the Border, never to be seen again, and etenally protected by Vicente Fox, all the while laughing at stupid Gringo Americans.
I'm glad you added the bla's at the end, because otherwise I'd think you're suggesting that Americans don't want to commit rape, or that would rape more if the pay was high enough.
"Those who pick the vegetables have no documentation and are generally migrants."
I think you confused "migrants" with illegals.
There are legitimate federal guest worker programs used in NC to bring mexicans (migrants) to the fields for the growing season.
They may use them in Florida as well, the only problem is there are two or three growing seasons in Florida so temporary work is actually year-round.
Chop off the offending appendage.
Some Turkish justice is in order for these scum. That is the ONLY punishment fit for rapists.
Of all the trades, I'd expect that farm labor would have the highest percentage of illegals. But maybe not, I don't know. BTW when I used the term 'migrants' that was not a statement of their legality, I meant only that they move around from one farm harvest to another, they don't put down roots.
>>>did she ask them to bust up a chifferobe?
LOL. That shouldn't be funny, but it is.
And THIS, gentlemen and ladies, is what high capacity magazines were intended for.
Just raping women no American will rape.
And at one time was what-- The AIDS cap of the country some years ago/////
