A second person allegedly took part in the sexual assault, but the name is redacted in the report, possibly because the person is also a juvenile but has not been charged as an adult.

The 43-year-old victim told Riviera Beach police she placed a personal ad for a personal escort on backpage.com and received a call July 16 from a male who agreed to pay her $160 for sex, the report said.

Once the woman arrived at the one-bedroom home, she was pushed inside by Caldwell and punched in the face, she told police.

The second male inside the residence told the woman she would be killed if she didn’t do as told, the report said. Caldwell and the second male then “forcefully” removed the woman’s dress and raped her, according to police.

The unnamed male videotaped the assault on his cellphone, the report said. The woman screamed and begged for help and was stabbed in the leg at one point. Rings she was wearing on her fingers were forcibly removed during the assault, the report said.

The men allegedly held the woman captive for 40 minutes and demanded money from her. She was able to escape when an unidentified man who brought her to the residence phoned and was told by the victim to bring money because she wasn’t being allowed to leave. As the man approached the front door, the victim ran out of the house, the report said.

Police interviewed Caldwell and the second man who had “inconsistent stories,” the report said.

Police found a pocket knife in Caldwell’s possession and the woman’s rings were found inside the home.
