The three brothers are friends of the victim’s family and were alone in a house with the girl Sept. 9, when they allegedly began making sexual advances towards her, according to NOLA. The brothers offered the girl money, and she refused and locked herself in the bathroom.
The brothers used what is believed to have been a butter knife to unlock the door, and then raped her.
A relative of the girl contacted police Saturday after the girl revealed she had been raped.
The two brothers who were arrested gave police conflicting statements about what they were doing at the time of the rape, according to police.
Police are continuing to search for Elder Paz Perez, and are investigating a second rape allegation against him involving another victim, police said according to NOLA.
Raul and Wilmer Paz Perez are being held without bond Monday.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Elder Paz-Perez is asked to contact the Kenner Police at (504) 712-2222 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
