Target: Essex County Sheriff Frank Cousins
Goal: Find, arrest, and charge Rashad Deihim for allegedly raping and beating a 16-year-old girl
Rashad Deihim, a 19-year-old from Massachusetts, is on the run after police say he and two other teens drugged, beat, and raped a 16-year-old girl. The victim was struggling to breathe when she was finally found nude in a bush behind the Douglas Waybright School in Saugus. She had been so brutally injured that authorities had to carry her out of the woods on a backboard to prevent further injuries before rushing her to the nearest hospital.
An examination revealed that she suffered bruises on her breasts and throat, that her whole body was covered in scratches, and that she had broken bones. The hospital also concluded that the victim had been given enough of an odorless, liquid drug to knock out two grown horses. She allegedly lost consciousness at the hospital but was thankfully revived with two doses of a drug used to treat heroin and opiate overdoses.
Deihim took videos of the vicious assault and sent the footage to other students at their school via SnapChat, an app that allows users to send pictures and videos that can only be viewed for a few seconds before they are deleted. However, the app has a feature that allows recipients to save pictures before the allotted time runs out. Police were notified of the incident after the victim’s friend received one of the SnapChat photos, which depicted Kailyn Bonia, Deihim’s 18-year-old girlfriend and accomplice, groping the victim. Another photo shows Bonia trying to force the victim to give oral sex to the third teen, a 17-year-old boy, at the scene.
Authorities have already charged Bonia with indecent assault, rape, and battery on a person over 14 years of age. Bonia has pled not guilty in Lynn District Court and is now being held in custody without bail. The third teen involved is also facing the same charges. However, Deihim has yet to be found and authorities think that he might be or has already fled the state.
Please sign this petition to encourage the authorities in their search for Deihim, ensuring that he is captured, arrested, and harshly punished for his deplorable rape of an innocent girl.
Dear Sheriff Cousins,
The recent case of three teens who are alleged to have brutally raped and beat a young girl is shocking and disgusting. To make the offense even worse, pictures and videos were taken of the victim and spread to their classmates via a social media app. Although two of the culprits have been apprehended, Rashad Deihim is still on the loose. Do not let him run away from his crimes. He nearly killed the victim, caused her excessive trauma, and gloated about the rape by sending pictures to multiple people.
I am urging you to ensure that Deihim is taken back to Essex County so that he can be punished for his actions. He deserves the harshest sentence that the law can give him for his reprehensible actions.
