Man Sexually Assaulted At Vegas Pool Party


gustavobanegasA man celebrating his birthday at one of Las Vegas’s popular, booze-soaked hotel pool parties allegedly sexually assaulted another male partier who had passed out in a bathroom of the MGM Grand, according to investigators.

Prosecutors allege that Gustavo Banegas, 22, attacked the victim last month at Wet Republic, which the Strip hotel describes as an “alluring 54,500-square-foot venue” comprised of several pools, banquets, and “tricked-out Bungalows and Party Cabanas.”

On the day of the alleged assault, the Dutch DJ Tiesto performed at the adults-only Wet Republic, where crowds of young swimsuit-clad revelers can number in the thousands.

wetrepublic091814According to investigators, Banegas (seen above) found the victim passed out on a toilet. After moving the man to the floor, Banegas rubbed the victim’s genitals, performed oral sex on the man, and placed his penis in the victim’s anal opening. Like Banegas, who lives in Florida, the victim was a tourist visiting Las Vegas.

The August 17 attack was interrupted when a security guard entered the bathroom.

A criminal complaint charges Banegas with two counts of sexual assault, attempted sexual assault, and open or gross lewdness. The victim, the complaint notes, was “mentally or physically incapable of resisting or understanding the nature of Defendant’s conduct.”

Banegas was arrested at the MGM Grand and booked into the Clark County jail, where he remains incarcerated in lieu of $60,000 bail. He is scheduled for a September 23 preliminary hearing in Circuit Court.

Banegas’s rap sheet includes a November 2013 arrest for trespassing in Miami, though that misdemeanor count was not subsequently pursued by prosecutors.

Girl, 16, Charged As Adult After Killing Man Selling PlayStation


A 16-year-old girl, who police say shot and killed a man who was trying to sell his PlayStation system over Craigslist, will be charged as an adult.

Nathaniel-VivianOn Tuesday, the Fulton County district attorney’s office released a statement saying it would pursue full charges against the girl, whose name has not yet been release.

“This case has been forwarded to our office for review,” District Attorney Paul L. Howard Jr. said in the statement. “After consulting with the Sandy Springs Police Department, we have determined that the suspects in this matter should be prosecuted together. As such, we have decided to seek prosecution against the 16-year-old minor as an adult.”

Howard’s office said an SB440 hearing, used to determine whether a minor can be prosecuted as an adult, is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Sept. 23 in the Fulton County Courthouse. The hearing will be in courtroom 8C.

Sandy Springs Police say the 16-year-old — along with her 20-year-old boyfriend Nathaniel Vivian — shot and killed 28-year-old Daniel John Zeitz last Friday as part of a botched robbery. The couple attempted to strong-arm a PS4 gaming system that Zeitz advertised for sale on Craigslist.

Zeitz, an avid gamer, was from Roswell.

According to police, Zeitz met the couple at about 9:30 p.m. last Friday at an apartment complex on Treelodge Parkway.

Sandy Springs police Sgt. Ron Momon said the pair tried to rob Zeitz of the PS4, and Vivian, who was in the driver’s seat of a car, struggled with Zeitz, who was standing outside the car, for the gaming system.

During the struggle, the girl fired a shot from a .25 caliber handgun, and the bullet passed through Vivian’s hand and struck Zeitz in the side of his chest, killing him.

Vivian and the girl were later arrested when they went to Northside Hospital for treatment of Vivian’s gunshot wound to the hand, Momon said.

Momon said Vivian claimed to be a robbery victim, but upon further questioning by detectives, “told them he was shot while he and his girlfriend were at the Legends of Dunwoody Apartments to rob a man of his PS4 video gaming system that was advertised on Craigslist.”

The 16-year-old’s 16-month-old baby was only a few feet away at the time of the robbery and shooting, according to Sandy Springs police Sgt. Ron Momon.

Momon said Vivian did not have an adult criminal record prior to the robbery and shooting. He also said he didn’t know if Vivian was the father of the 16-month-old child, who was turned over to family members after the shooting.

He declined to release any more details about the 16-year-old, but said she is currently being held at the Metro Regional Detention center in Atlanta.

Vivian is being held without bond in the Fulton County Jail.

The gun was recovered from the suspects’ car.

Zeitz was known by the name “Phobos” in online gaming circles, and one of his online gaming teammates set up a GoFundMepage to raise money for Zeitz’s funeral expenses. By Monday afternoon, the page had raised more than $15,000.

A video about Zeitz’s killing posted by a friend Saturday on YouTube has been viewed nearly 20,000 times.

Sailor was allegedly raped with rubber chicken, hogtied and smeared with Vegemite and Deep Heat


A YOUNG sailor was allegedly hogtied, smeared with Vegemite and Deep Heat and anally raped with a rubber chicken.

546626-b3f153e4-3d59-11e4-bf5a-0352721e6660The victim, who cannot be named, was allegedly subject to a “last night at sea ritual”, in August 2011 on board the HMAS Newcastle, off the coast of Western Australia.

Four Australian sailors faced court martial in Sydney today over the alleged incident, although there is evidence other sailors were also present.

Able seamen Rohan Angre, Mitchell Summers, Michael Thompson and Jonathan Walter are accused of holding the man down, smearing him with the Vegemite and the liniment Deep Heat before assaulting him with the object.

It is alleged after sexually assaulting the man with what was believed to be a rubber chicken, Able Seaman Thompson tried to push the object into the man’s mouth.

“It was at this point he was released for the time being,” Prosecuting officer Lieutenant Colonel David Jordan said in Sydney’s General Court Martial on Tuesday.

“He was lifted by his arms and legs to the shower station … He’ll tell you his eyes were watering,” he said.

“I anticipate he will tell you he saw AB Walter, Angre and Thompson.”

The court martial heard he was then placed on his knees and doused with a dark liquid that caused his eyes to blister.

He was then doused with water and left at the bottom of the shower, with burns from the Deep Heat on his neck, shoulders and genitalia.

He washed and cleaned himself to go on watch later that night. The four men face six charges between them, including indecent and sexual assault.

Able seaman Angre has already pleaded guilty to assault occasioning bodily harm, for pouring an unidentified liquid over the alleged victim’s head, which caused him to suffer burns to his skin and eyes.

The court martial continues.

Teen May Get 2 Years For Pic Of Fake Oral Sex With Jesus


Will this boy get punished for coming to Jesus?

A Pennsylvania teen may face up to two years behind bars for allegedly taking a photo of himself simulating oral sex with a statue of Jesus, Kron 4 reports.


The photo was taken in front of Love in the Name of Christ, a Christian organization in Everett, Pennsylvania, and posted on Facebook back in July.

On Tuesday, the 14-year-old — whose name has not been released by police — was charged with desecration of a venerated object, the Smoking Gun reported. If convicted, he could wind up spending two years in a juvenile jail, according to Kron 4.

“Desecration” is defined in Pennsyvlania as ““Defacing, damaging, polluting or otherwise, physically mistreating in a way that the actor knows will outrage the sensibilities of persons likely to observe or discover the action.” notes that in Pennsylvania, a vandalism charge usually carries amaximum penalty of only one year in jail. JT Eberhard writes:

So let’s say an adult (subject to harsher penalties than minors) elected to spray paint “Jesus loves dicks” on the side of this boy’s school. That guy, at most (and the “at most” comes in to play for people with previous criminal records, which this boy doesn’t have), would serve a year in jail – and that’s assuming the cost of having the wall re-painted exceeds $150, otherwise the penalty would be less.

But a 14 year-old does something stupid that causes literally zero property damage and he could face two years in juvenile jail because it’s a “venerated object”? That’s insane. That’s really ludicrous.

The teen’s original Facebook post garnered 124 Facebook comments, ranging from “Amazing” and “this is heaven” to “this is repulsive, even if you don’t believe you could at least have respect for those who do and those who ARE going to Heaven…you discusting [sic], disturbed, disrespectful little punk ass bitch.”

A spokesperson for Love in the Name of Christ told Raw Story that the ministry did not ask police to press charges.
