These three men are accused of horrific crimes committed against a teenage girl in Alexandria, Virginia. Police say that Thomas Barker, 32, Steven Powers, 20, and Joshua Holby, 31, kidnapped and sexually assaulted the girl over the course of weeks. The girl only escaped by swimming across a lake.
It was Barker who alleged convinced the teen to get into his car and then took to Carlos’ house. The 15-year-old teenager was kidnapped on August 8th. She was able to break away this week and knocked on the doors of nearby houses but no one answered. She then swam across the lake and found a farmer who took her to safety.
The three men face assault, kidnapping and false imprisonment charges.
Barker who is shown on the left was defended by his mother. She maintained that her son has cerebral palsy and uses a walker. She said that he is also married and has six children, including a month-old son.
