After having sex with four minors, a woman accused them of robbing her. But the teens had proof that things didn't happen the way the woman claimed — a video of the liaison behind a clothing store, according to a police report.
Delray Beach police arrested Schnydine Augustine, 20, on Monday, days after she told police on Feb. 18 that four or five black males surrounded her after she left the Metro PCS on South Military Trail in Delray Beach. She said one of the males pushed her down, took her iPhone 4S and $50 before leaving the area on bicycles, according to the report.
She told police the males had followed her from a Ross Dress for Less clothing store and then to Metro PCS.
After reviewing security footage from the stores, police identified two 15-year-olds and a 16-year-old as suspects. Augustine positively identified the three as her robbers in a police line-up, according to the report.
But when the boys spoke to police, they had a different story. They told police they did not take anything from Augustine, in fact, they had consensual sex with her behind the clothing store, police said.
The oldest boy told police he and the two 15-year-olds met Augustine inside the Ross store. When they went around back to have sex with her, another 15-year-old and a 14-year-old showed up, according to the report.
One of the teens showed police a video on his cell phone of Augustine having sex with all three of them, according to the report. They also told police Augustine had performed oral sex on the 14-year-old.
Police viewed the video and confirmed Augustine had sexual contact with the four teens. They then questioned Augustine about the alleged robbery, and she confirmed her original story, according to the report.
But when police brought up having sex with the teens, she admitted she lied about the original report and that she was having sex while still claiming her cell phone was taken, according to the report.
Augustine is charged with three counts of lewd battery against a victim under 16, perjury contradictory statements in official proceedings and knowingly giving false information to police of an alleged crime.
She is being held in the Palm Beach County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bail, according to jail records.
