— Two men have been charged with sexually assaulting a girl in the school parking lot last week during a Northwest Halifax High School football game, authorities said Friday.

The 16-year-old girl told investigators that two people pulled her into a vehicle in the parking lot on Sept. 14 and raped her.

Rashad Evans, 17, of Hollister, and Jarell King, 18, of Enfield, were charged with kidnapping and first-degree rape. Evans also was charged with first-degree sex offense.

Evans was arrested Thursday, and King was arrested Friday. Both were being held in the Halifax County jail under $50,000 bonds.

As of Saturday, Evans had bonded out, King had not.

No other details of the case were released.

    The Carolina Sweetheart - you are the one that just threw the "race card" into this!

    Ax Man didn't mention their race only that the boys probably don't have a father in their lives to teach them how to be respectful to a woman, to do what's right and to be a man with morals.

    Anyone is capable of becoming a criminal but the likelyhood of that happening increase greatly when the family is dysfunctional and/or not intact.

    "Death penalty x 2 please!

    I have a great idea! We could setup guillotines in the town squares for executions.

    How strange. This post in it's entirety was deleted. I guess the moderators do not like the honest expression of opinion particularly since no part of it violated their guidelines.

    I agree with madcoat1...Was she by herself? and did she know these two? How did she get seperated from whomever she went to the game with? Something's not right here. I smell something fishy.

    Hope they rot in prison for the next 50 years of their worthless lives.

    ***The family unit is going down the toilet. I'll bet neither one of these guys has a father in their lives.

    @ Ax Man, Really?? What gives you that impression, the fact that they made a tremendously stupid decision that changed the life of a young girl & will cost them years in prison, or because they are black? Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were both filthy rich and had fathers who were present and active in their homes and those two psychopaths shot up a school, killed 13 ppl and wounded dozens more! So before you assume that they don't have a father present, let's just assume that if they are convicted and are truly guilty making such a stupid decision and committing such a horrible crime that they are locked away for the next 50 years!
