Jupiter, FL (WFLX) - "It was uh, it was brutal. They kinda like spread my legs and all that kind of stuff, put me to the ground, threw me around a lot."

The fourteen year old boy, a 9th grader who asked that we only use his first name Richard, says it was awful.

He says two students at Jupiter High--one a football player, the other a lacrosse player--pretended to rape him in a school locker room five times.  " I didn't understand why they would be doing this to me.  I was humiliated because everybody in the locker room was laughing," Richard said.

He says the two boys,  18 year old Storm Stockstill and a 16 year old juvenile,  were both bigger than him and he couldn't stop them.

Not only were other students laughing, but he says two physical education  teachers, Nathan Weston and Doug Ferguson,  also watched and laughed.

"There were two coaches and they laughed. They were both laughing at me. They didn't do nothin' about it.  I yelled help. I yelled help a million times.  I asked why they were laughing. They said because it was the most weird thing I've ever seen in my life and they thought it was hilarious," Richard said.

The simulated rapes happened last November.  At first the two boys were given a ten-day suspension and then were allowed to return to school at Jupiter High School until their arrest this week.

"I find it hard to believe the kids would act that way in a school situation type of thing. Teachers should have done something about it," said Cheri Kosack, a parent who was picking up her child at Jupiter High School this afternoon.

"I do support this school.  It's a wonderful school. It's just a very sad incident," said Karen Byrne, another parent.

The victim told us he no longer feels safe at Jupiter High School and now attends school in north Florida.
