Their victim was a high school student they attacked at a party on a Lake Superior beach in the early morning hours of a day in 2017.

It was about 2 a.m. when the two young Wawa men followed the vomiting and stumbling girl, who was feeling “woozy” after consuming four drinks, into a nearby wooded area that was being used as a latrine at a beach.

They pushed the teen to the ground and simultaneously sexually assaulted her, Superior Court Justice Ian McMillan heard a few months ago.
