CLEVELAND — Two Broadview Heights men are accused of raping young girls they met on the web site MySpace.
Channel 3 News first told you about 21-year-old Albert Azolino back in March.
He is accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old Strongsville student lured to his home through internet chat.
Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason says Azolino and 33-year-old friend Timothy Norman face rape, unlawful sexual contact with minors, and pandering charges.
The prosecutor warns parents to be leery of the kids spending time on this web site.
“It’s like a catalogue for predators,” Mason said. “It’s got the pictures of the kids so anybody who wants to get online — they go on to myspace.com, look at the pictures and click on it. Up comes the profile of the person they just click on.”
Mason says the suspects would offer alcohol to the kids then photograph them during sex acts.
If convicted the two could face life in prison.
I was unable to find the MySpaces of either suspect. If you know of them please let me know.
