3 juveniles charged in Rosemoor rape, home invasion

Three juveniles have been arrested and charged in the home invasion and rape of a woman in Chicago's Rosemoor neighborhood, police said.

Monique Isaiah bravely spoke out the day after her violent attack, telling ABC7 Eyewitness news three men broke into her home on Sept. 14, stole her valuables and raped her as her child slept in the next room. While ABC7 does not usually name victims of sexual assault, Isaiah chose to publicly tell her story.

Police said a 15-year-old boy, a 16-year-old boy and a 12-year-old boy were arrested for the crime.

The 15-year-old was arrested on Sept. 15 and charged with one felony count of home invasion and one felony count of aggravated criminal sexual assault.

The 16-year-old was arrested on Sept. 16 and charged with one felony count of possession of a stolen vehicle, one felony count of home invasion and one felony count of aggravated criminal sexual assault.

The 12-year-old was arrested Wednesday, and charged with one felony count of home invasion and one felony count of aggravated criminal sexual assault.

All three boys were charged as juveniles and were ordered held in custody, police said. They are due in court on Monday.
