  • A woman carrying her two young sons arrived home from work around 3 a.m., May 12 to find two men had broken into her apartment.  The men shocked her with tasers, threw boiling water on her and raped her while her older son watched, a police report said. Police have arrested 17-year-old Francisco Palencia, 19-year-old Josue Ramirez and an unnamed 15-year-old female in connection with the assault. All three suspects have been charged with home invasion, rape, aggravated sodomy, kidnapping, aggravated battery and cruelty to children. More arrests are possible, a Gwinnett County Police Department spokesman said.  WATCH: Gwinnett police chase ends in 14 traffic, drug charges Gwinnett mom accused of drugging kids arrested in Tennessee Palencia and the 15-year-old were arrested Tuesday. Jail logs show Ramirez was booked on June 15. Palencia and Ramirez are being held without bond at the Gwinnett County Detention Center. Because the 15-year-old’s identity has not been disclosed, her bond status was not immediately clear. The men were wearing dark clothes and ski masks when the victim found them in the kitchen of her apartment in unincorporated Tucker. She tried to get away from them and protect her children, but one of the men threw two pots of boiling water on her, severely burning her shoulder, a police report said. The men shocked the victim with tasers and pushed her towards the bedroom. They forced her to perform oral sex before raping her on her bed, the police report said. The victim’s older son, who had followed her and the men into the bedroom, sat on the bed as his mother was raped, the report said. Police have not disclosed the age of the victim’s children. The 15-year-old suspect was not in the apartment during the assault, according to the police report. She is believed to have driven Palencia and Ramirez to the apartment, a police spokesman said.  When the men left the apartment, the victim found that the men cut a screen on her back porch and got into the home through an unlocked sliding glass door, according to police. The victim’s jewelry box, school ID and German shepherd puppy were missing from the apartment, the police report said.  The dog had been on the screened-in porch when the victim was at work. Police don’t know if it’s been found.  Like Gwinnett County News on Facebook | Follow us on Twitter and Instagram

  • The Latest on Vatican Cardinal George Pell being charged with sex offenses in Australia (all times local): 11:35 a.m. The Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney says Vatican Cardinal George Pell will return to Australia to fight sexual assault charges as soon as possible. The archdiocese statement released on his behalf said Pell 'again strenuously denied all allegations' against him. Victoria state police said earlier Thursday that Pell was being summonsed to face multiple charges of 'historical sexual offenses,' meaning offenses that generally occurred some time ago. Pell was ordered to appear in court on July 18. The archdiocese statement says Pell 'is looking forward to his day in court and will defend the charges vigorously.' Pell is planning to make a further statement in Rome later today. ___ 10 a.m. Australian police have charged a top Vatican cardinal with multiple counts of historical sexual assault offenses in a stunning decision certain to rock the highest levels of the Holy See. Cardinal George Pell, Pope Francis' chief financial adviser and Australia's most senior Catholic, is the highest-ranking Vatican official to ever be charged in the church's long-running sexual abuse scandal. Victoria state Police Deputy Commissioner Shane Patton said police have summonsed Pell to face multiple charges of 'historical sexual offenses,' meaning offenses that generally occurred some time ago. Pell was ordered to appear in Melbourne Magistrates Court on July 18. Pell has repeatedly denied all abuse allegations made against him.
  • The Latest on the Trump administration's revived travel ban for visitors from six mostly Muslim countries (all times local): 9:25 p.m. The Trump administration has set new criteria for visa applicants from six mainly Muslim nations and all refugees that require a 'close' family or business tie to the United States. The move comes after the Supreme Court partially restored President Donald Trump's executive order that was widely criticized as a ban on Muslims. The new guidelines sent to U.S. embassies and consulates on Wednesday say that applicants from the six countries must prove a relationship with a parent, spouse, child, adult son or daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law or sibling in the U.S. This is according to a State Department cable obtained by the Associated Press. Grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, brothers-laws and sisters-in-law, fiancees or other extended family members are not considered to be close relationships. ___ 12:06 p.m. Senior officials from the departments of State, Justice and Homeland Security are finalizing criteria that visitors from six mostly Muslim must meet to avoid the Trump administration's revived travel ban. The White House deliberations come as U.S. embassies and consulates await instructions later Wednesday on how to implement this week's Supreme Court order that partially reinstated the ban after it was blocked by lower courts. The new measures are expected to be implemented Thursday. The justices' opinion exempts applicants from the ban if they can prove a 'bona fide relationship' with a U.S. person or entity. Government lawyers must determine how to define such a relationship. The court offered only broad guidelines — suggesting it would include a relative, job offer or invitation to lecture in the U.S.
