Four teenagers and an adult are accused in the rape of a 16-year-old girl they recorded in Quarterpath Park in June, police said.

Williamsburg Police have arrested four teenage boys – three 16-year-olds and one 15-year-old – and have warrants out for the arrest of 20-year-old Korey Alexander Gemmiti in connection with the rape and videotaping of the assault.

Three of the juveniles, who will not be named because of their ages, and Gemmiti are from James City County. The fourth juvenile is from the City of Williamsburg.

Williamsburg Police responded around 12:15 a.m. June 9 to a reported sexual assault.

The girl told investigators she had been sexually assaulted the evening of June 8 in Quarterpath Park, where she had been hanging out with friends. At one point, she walked into a wooded area with a male juvenile friend when several other males surrounded them.

She said two of the boys sexually assaulted her, while one of them videoed the incident.

Investigators were able to identify all of the involved suspects, which included the accuser’s friend. The girl is acquainted with the other suspects, said Maj. Greg Riley, a spokesperson for the Williamsburg Police.

Riley said the suspects shared the video of the sexual assault with each other.

Petitions charge two of the juveniles with rape and possession of child pornography. A third juvenile is charged with one count each of possession and distribution of child pornography. The fourth juvenile is charged with two counts of accessory before the fact for rape and possession of child pornography.

All four teenage boys were arrested Oct. 23 and detained at Merrimac Juvenile Detention Center.

Gemmiti, who police say videotaped the assault, is charged with one count of production of child pornography, three counts of distribution of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. Those warrants have not yet been served.
