The most bizarre crimes are happening and this one is shocking and utterly disgusting. The people breaking in homes these days are not just there to steal material belongings anymore, they want to inflict injury and/or pain on the residents of the home.
Three men in Memphis, Tennessee, were assaulted in their home by four home invaders. The words robber or burglar doesn’t really reflect what these animals have done. The men that invaded the home, raped, beat, and tortured the men living inside the home. According to the report from WMCTV:
“One of the victims was taken to one room, while the other two were taken to another. According to a police affidavit, they were beaten with a baseball bat and broom handle. All three of the men were sodomized and sexually assaulted with the weapons. The incident lasted for nearly nine hours.”
The innuendo surrounding this horrific crime suggests that the men living in the home may have been gay and this may have been a hate crime. Cornelius Banks is the only one of the group that has been arrested and is charged with a slew of charges including:
“…multiple counts of aggravated burglary, aggravated rape, aggravated sexual battery, especially aggravated kidnapping, especially aggravated robbery, and carrying a firearm with the intent of committing a felony.”
