Teen Claims She Was Threatened With Rape, Murder Over Laptop

A 14-year-old Dacula teen said she was coerced into giving her laptop to a male acquaintance.

Gwinnett County Police are investigating a Jan. 25 incident in which a 14-year-old Dacula teen said she was robbed of her laptop.

The teen told police a male acquaintance of hers asked to borrow her laptop. The teen asked her parents if she could loan the laptop to the male and her parents said no.

According to the teen, the male acquaintance came to her house to get the laptop. When the teen said her parents had not given her permission to loan it out, the male acquaintance allegedly said in a low voice, “You know what? If you don’t give me the laptop, I will rape you and kill you and your family.”

The teen said she was frightened by the suspect’s words and by his demeanor and believed he would follow through with his threat if she did not hand over the laptop. After the teen gave him the laptop, the male reportedly left the house.

The teen advised that she sent several text messages to the male asking him to return the computer. The male responded to several of the messages, but had not returned the laptop at the time the report was filed.

The case is listed as active.
