3 Somerville Teens Accused Of Sports Camp Sex Assaults

Three male Somerville High School students attending a sports camp in western Massachusetts have been arrested on charges they sexually assaulted three younger campers.

Berkshire District Attorney David Capeless said the assaults allegedly occurred Sunday at Camp Lenox in Otis, where Somerville was holding an annual team-building retreat. He said the three juniors allegedly assaulted three freshmen in a cabin.

Capeless said 17-year-old Galileo Mondo and two 16-year-old juveniles were arrested Friday. Mondol is facing charges including aggravated rape of a child, assault with intent to rape a child, indecent assault and a battery and assault with a dangerous weapon. The juveniles, whose names weren't released, face similar charges. It's not immediately known if they have attorneys. They are to be arraigned Tuesday.

Somerville officials said they learned of the allegations Tuesday and immediately told authorities.
