Teens Charged as Adults in Gang Rape of Girls Inside Garage

Two Wisconsin teens are being charged as adults in the alleged gang rape of two girls inside a garage, where one victim said she was forced to perform oral sex until her throat bled.

A 16-year-old victim told police that she and a 15-year-old who had just run away from a nearby Family & Children’s Center were inside suspect Heavell Basley’s garage late Oct. 29 or early Oct. 30 with about 15 other people, according to a criminal complaint obtained by the La Crosse Tribune.

The 16-year-old girl said Basley and another teen, Ronald Crosby Jr., 17, proceeded to rape and hit the 15-year-old victim before she intervened. The 16-year-old girl was then forced to perform oral sex on “a lot” of offenders until her throat bled. Several unidentified teens then raped and hit her, according to the complaint.

The 15-year-old girl said she lost consciousness after she ingested a drug while being forced to perform oral sex before a “whole bunch of guys” raped her, according to the complaint.

Basley, 18, also allegedly assaulted one girl three times, hitting and choking her, before calling her a derogatory name for “having sex with all those other guys,” the criminal complaint reads.


Basley initially told police he was “being a nice guy” by providing a home for the 15-year-old girl. He claimed he saw other males inside the garage assaulting her before admitting he had as well, according to the complaint. He also said the younger girl forced herself on him and that the 16-year-old girl was not assaulted, according to police.
