Resident says he called 911 to report drunk teens

Guam - A Dededo resident has come forward, saying he tried to alert police about the situation in the Santa Ana area on Saturday morning. He claims police never arrived until after they received the call of a beyond control female minor a few hours later.

The northerner, who wanted to remain anonymous, tells KUAM News he awoke between 4 and 5 o'clock on Saturday morning, hearing loud noises coming from the vacant home next door. He thought someone had broken into his landlord's house - but when he brought out his flashlight he saw what appeared to be three girls and four boys on top of the roof. "From what I see, they were drunk. Those kids are drunk," he said.

"I told them, 'What are you - what are you guys doing on this roof? This is not your property!' Then all of a sudden one guy starts throwing rocks at my place and then they just split," he recalled.

That's when he called 911 to report the incident to police. He shared, "I called 911 and told them there are young kids or teens who are drunk that started throwing rocks at my place. The lady at 911 told me, 'Okay, the cops are coming.'"

The resident said he waited a few minutes and then received a phone call from a police officer. "He asked, 'Is there any property damage in your place?' I told him there was none and the guy said, 'Okay, they're on their way.'"

The teens meanwhile ran away deep into the jungle area which was about 80 yards from the main road.

Police responded to a "beyond control report" around 7 o'clock in the morning and that's when they learned of the sexual assaults and after scouring the jungle, located the 11-year-old girl who was passed out, beaten and raped.  The 15-year-old beyond control female was found intoxicated and reported being assaulted and raped as well.

"I was disappointed," the Dededo man said. "I'm not criticizing the cops here in Guam - it's just if they take seriously the calls it's probably could have been avoided.

"It's probably they have another call, which is probably more urgent than what I did because."

As we reported, Gibson Billias, Hen Henry, Helpme Roby and a 15-year-old were arrested and confined on criminal sexual conduct charges. Guam Police Department spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia says the police department is taking the information obtained by KUAM News seriously as they investigate whether police failed to respond.  Part of that investigation will determine the manpower strength and the types of calls that were entertained during that particular shift on Saturday morning.

On average, the Dededo Precinct normally only has between four to six officers on duty at any given time to handle responses in all of Dededo and Yigo and parts of Harmon.

"No wonder why," the man shrugged. "We need more cops."

    Government wants full payment from Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho

    It's a $750 wedding ring, but its significance and meaning, priceless. While Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho is serving life behind bars, the government argues he's not being held fully accountable for his crimes. Five years ago, Camacho kidnapped and raped Monique Baza after she made a quick run to the bakery for bread. Though it's a minimal amount for the ring that was never recovered, defense has motioned to waive restitution.  The government, in its response this week, argued ...More >>
