— The Wake County Sheriff's Office is investigating claims by two teenage girls that they were raped after a group of men gave them alcohol at a Holly Springs home Saturday night.

The mother of one of the girls said her 17-year-old daughter and two girlfriends met three men at McDonald’s on Western Boulevard in Raleigh. The group then decided to leave and drove in separate cars to the Holly Springs home of one of the men.

It was there, the mother said, that the men, all of whom appeared to be about 21 years old, gave the girls a fruit-flavored malt beverage with 12 percent alcohol.

“This made them so drunk so quickly that they were in no condition to run, to fight,” the mother said, adding that her daughter felt sick and locked herself in the bathroom. “The owner of the house had a gun and threatened to shoot if she wouldn’t unlock the door.”

The girl passed out after leaving the bathroom, according to her mother, and awoke to find one of the men raping her.

“She (told the man), ‘I’m a good girl. Don’t do this. Please don’t do this. Stop.’ But he went and forced himself anyway,” the mother said.

All three men then raped one of the other girls, who is 18, according to the mother. The third girl, who is 19, willingly had sex with one of the men, the mother said.

“(My daughter’s) life has changed. My baby will never be the same again,” the mother said. “I can only pray that God works on her heart and that, one day, we can forgive this scum.”

The case has been made more difficult, according to the mother, because the girls drove away from the house the next morning and don’t remember where it is. They also didn’t report the rape until several days later.

Wake County deputies confirmed Thursday that they are investigating the case but declined to release more details.

    Forget God. Get a parenting book and tell your CHILD not to go to strangers house ALONE without notifying ANYONE. Did they force the "beer" down their throats? No and they probably were not "raped" until after they realized what they did. "Rape" is denial for skank.

    "Sounds like their trying to protect the guys that did it to them."

    No, they're trying to protect themselves.

    Did they even know WHO the men were before going with them? What I mean is, they're confused abt the house and such.....just give them a name.

    The whole story sounds fishy!! But rape is rape if that really happened :(

    Guess some of you don't remember being 17! I'm 56,a wife and mother but I remember being so young. Naive and unsophisticated would be better to think of young girls than stupid and deserving of being raped! They probably thought it was a "party" and the guys might really like them. I'm sure the guys were nice as pie at first. They shouldn't be drinking of course but that is not unusual and we all know it. (I always have told my friends that women can drink but you must never ever pass out.) Seventeen is so very young and it could have happened just this way.They may have been drinking but the drink may have been dosed with a little extra something. Give the LEO time to work on it, it may all become clear. Rape is rape and they will do it again, if not held accountable! As to finding it again, add excitement, darkness and woods to that ride and that makes sense too, for young girls.

    Why didnt them write down the house number and the street address. Why they didnt write down the license number of the guys cars? Maybe they got more than they deserved but certainly they got what they were looking for. Why the parents didnt ask them where they were all nite the next morning when they got home? Maybe they had an agreement to meet these guys from an internet site. Story doesnt make any sense. I have been to McDonalds several times and I have never had an occasion to meet 3 girls and invite them to my house. Must have been a fun party if they spent the night.

    3 young women, 3 men, one house with alcohol. I think we all know how the story goes from here... Sounds like the mother's are pressing the issue more than the girls because 3 girls don't get in a car and drive away the next morning and forget where they were at. Sounds like their trying to protect the guys that did it to them.

    Good girls don't lie to parents and drink alcohol with random guys at their house, ever. What's worst is the fact they stayed til morning and drove home, now they dont remember where exactly they were at. I hope that these 3 women are seriously not that dense.

    If they drove to the house from McDonalds they surely know where the house is. They left the next morning and drove home. And now they want us to believe they dont know where the house is? I think they are making things up so make it look worse than it was. They were more than willing.

    Your daughter should have had enough common sense to know not to go into a STRANGERS HOUSE with THREE MEN. Stupidity has consequenses.
