3 Bridgeport teens face judge in sexual assault case

Three Bridgeport teens went before a judge today after police say they repeatedly sexually assaulted two 12-year-old girls, and recorded the acts on their cell phones.

Seventeen-year-old Quadir White and 18-year-olds Marcus Jeanty and Malcolm Rivera are charged with sexually abusing two minors over the summer in the basement of a local home.

Police say the two girls were too afraid to come forward because the suspects had threatened to show the girl's parents the cell phone video.

No one knew of the alleged abuse until recently, when one of the girls told her school guidance counselor, who then contacted police.

Two of suspects are due back in court on Monday. 3rd teen arrested in Bridgeport sex case
