COHASSET – Two Scituate men have been charged with raping a 15-year-old girl at the home of one of the men’s mother.
Zachery P. Chamberlain, 19, of 12 Captain Pierce Road, and Joshua Ford, 20, of 56 Henry Turner Bailey Road in Scituate, pleaded innocent June 10 in Quincy District Court on one count each of rape of a child. A judge ordered each of them held on $2,500 cash bail, which they posted at the courthouse.
The girl reported to Cohasset Police on June 7 that Chamberlain and Ford had assaulted her separately at Ford’s mother’s house in Cohasset on June 4, according to a police officer’s affidavit filed in court.
The girl told police Chamberlain, who she’d met once before, and Ford, who she did not know, picked her and a friend up that afternoon and drove them to Minot Beach in Scituate. She told police the two men had been drinking and that there was alcohol in the vehicle.
Later in the day, they went to Ford’s mother’s house where the group continued drinking and hanging out, the document said. The girl told police that while they were there Ford and Chamberlain each assaulted her separately.
Warrants were issued for the two men on June 9.
Ford was arrested in Hull and Chamberlain turned himself in after learning a warrant had been issued for his arrest.
They are due back in court on Aug. 15.
