The father of a woman accused of assaulting a teenager in a wooded area of Cape May County says he doesn't believe the charges.
Eighteen-year-old Brittany Hearon was charged with endangering the welfare of a child, police said.
Seven others who are minors, according to police, are accused of sexually assaulting and attacking the victim. Three of the teenage suspects were sent to a juvenile detention center while the others were released to their parents.
The attack happened in a wooded area of Lower Township known as "Rutherford Tract."
Hearon was released on her own recognizance.
Tonight look for cloudy and foggy skies with spotty showers N&W. Lows in the 50s.
Our next cold front comes through tomorrow, with rain, in the morning and then especially Friday evening. With the blast of cold air that follows, we'll probably have a dry day on Saturday, and the chance of a Sunday wintry mix into the afternoon and evening. A light coating could occur for some before a changeover to rain. Stay tuned!
