A 22-Year-Old Woman Was Arrested For Sexual Relationship With 15-Year-Old And Forcing Him To Sell Drugs

Twenty-two-year-old Irabelis Carrazana was arrested in Miami for having a sexual relationship with a teenage boy. The woman is also being accused of encouraging the boy to partake in the gangster lifestyle she was involved with. This included selling drugs and other gang activity. Stories like these highlight the dangers of young, impressionable kids who meet the wrong adults willing to corrupt them before they fully realize their own potential and dreams. Carrazana more than introduced the child to the gangster lifestyle, there are messages proving that she pressured and forced him to sell drugs for the gang she was a member of.

The crime went down in Miami. While it’s not clear how Carrazana met the teenage boy, officials say that she was involved with him for more than a year. This wasn’t just a sexual relationship. It was a lot more perverse and appalling than that. Miami-Dade police say that Carrazana was using the 15-year-old for numerous lewd acts other criminal actions. 

The woman not only used the boy for sex, but she forced him to commit crimes, including selling drugs and had him involved with gang activity.

According to officials, she used the teen to be her errand boy, so if anyone got caught basically, he would be the one that was committing the crimes. However, Carrazana wasn’t very smart about hiding her crimes. She put it all out in the open. 

Police found text messages in which she directed the teenage boy to pick the drug and sell them. He would then give the money to Carrazana.  Officials also found numerous videos on Carrazana’s phone that show the two engaging in sexual acts. The teen admitted to having sex with Carrazana since he was 14. 

The only reason these two ended their relationship was after the teen boy said he didn’t want to sell drugs for her anymore.

Police say that Carrazana got mad at the boy for not delivering money from a drug deal. That is when he told her he wanted out. It’s pretty remarkable that the boy wasn’t killed because, according to the cops, he was at his house when someone drove by and began firing. 

CBS News reports that Carrazana was charged with “possession of a sexual performance by a child, child neglect charges and contributing to a delinquency of a child.”

The poor kid was like an Uber driver for this woman and also her sex slave. It’s all very disgusting. Carrazana’s arraignment is scheduled for next month, and it’s also unclear if she is remorseful for her actions. 

Carrazana is the latest woman this year to be caught this year having a sexual relationship with an underage boy.

According to the Center For Disease Control, a 2011 report showed that both men and women were forced to have sexual relationships. The Independent reports, “Similarly, the 2010 survey showed comparable results estimating that nearly 4.5 million men in the US had, at some stage in their lives, been forced to penetrate another person – and that in 79.2 percent of cases, the perpetrator forcing the sexual act was a woman.”

The National Center for Victims of Crime reports that they estimate that women are the abusers in about 14 percent of cases reported among boys and 6 percent of cases reported among girls. 

It’s also extremely difficult for boys to speak out if they’re being abused whether their assailant is a man or a woman. If the predator is a woman who is forcing a man to have sex with them, they rarely disclose it because of the shame surrounding the politics of sex. 

A study titled “Male Rape: The Silent Victim and the Gender of the Listener” Dr. Patrizia Riccardi notes, “A common theme emerging in treating male rape victims is a lost sense of manliness. Male victims voice their concern in reconciling their masculine identity with their experience of being raped. One patient reported that he never disclosed it to his wife of 30 years; the sense of stigma from the rape was felt as huge and devastating.”

NFL Lineman Justin Herron Saved A 71-Year-Old Woman Who Was Being Sexually Assaulted

Fans of the New England Patriots offensive lineman Justin Herron know by now that he’s got a thing for being in the right place at the right time. After all, his career relies on it.

Still, most likely didn’t know that the 25-year-old football player has a hero’s spirit as well.

This week, the lineman was honored by an Arizona police department for his role in saving a 71-year-old woman from being sexually assaulted.

On March 21 a 71-year-old woman was taking her daily stroll in Kiwanis Park in Tempe, Arizona when a 30-year-old man attacked her. The man, now identified as s Kevin Caballero, threw the woman to the ground in the park and attempted to remove her pants.

Herron and a Phoenix resident, identified as Murry Rogers, were present during the assault attempt and intervened.

“It was a crazy experience,” Herron stated during a news conference on Wednesday, according to NBC affiliate KPNX. “It was something that I never dreamed that I thought I would see. You see it in movies and TV all the time but you never think it’s gonna happen in real life until it does. In that moment, I was in shock. It was 11, it was in the middle of the day, not one cloud in the sky, and in a very open field, and the fact that it happened there at that time was very shocking.”

At the time of the incident, Herron was working out by the lake and Rogers was getting ready for a birthday party in the park for his 15-year-old daughter.

“I’m a football player, I’m kind of big,” Herron who is Herron, who is 6-foot-5 and 305 pounds, stated during the news conference. “I try not to be too aggressive with people knowing I could potentially hurt somebody. I do have a loud voice. I yelled, told him to get off of her, and then yanked him off and I told him to sit down and I told him to wait until the cops come.”

For their actions, Herron and Rogers were presented with Outstanding Service Awards by the Tempe Police Department.

“These two individuals stepped forward and really, truly saved her life,” Tempe police chief Jeff Glover stated during the ceremony.

According to the Today Show, “Herron has been in Arizona for offseason training ahead of his second season with the Patriots. The team’s sixth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft out of Wake Forest University said he was just reacting when he saw the woman being attacked.”

“And in the moment, I wish I could tell you what I was thinking, but I just knew that someone needed help,” Herron said. “… All I could do was just rush myself over there and make sure and help the victim, and make sure that I comfort her and be the best person I can be.”

Herron and Rogers were able to meet with the woman who has yet to be identified.

“Over the past several days, I have thought about her and pictured her face, so it was really nice moment, and I’m really glad I got to meet her,” Rogers said during the ceremony.

“My parents always talked to me about it, if there’s someone in need, make sure you can help them and be the best you can be,” Herron added. “I don’t want this to happen again, I don’t want to have to save someone else’s life again, but I’m glad I was able to save someone’s life on Saturday.”

Street Vendor By The Name Of Lorenzo Pérez Murdered Execution Style — “The person who killed my dad took away a part of me”

Like many street vendors, 45-year-old Lorenzo Pérez sold food to support his family.

Married and the father of four children ages 15, 13, 9, and 1, Perez is described by friends and family as being well known amongst neighborhood residents. He was often seen working alongside his daughter who helped him on occasion. Now, the community and family who knew Perez well are in mourning, after he was shot in broad daylight while doing his job.

Perez died after he being shot in the head in southeast Fresno on Sunday afternoon.

Fresno Police were called to the scene of a possible robbery at Alta and Pierce Avenues, near Kings Canyon and Willow around 4:30 p.m. on Sunday. On the way to the scene, the police officers learned that a street vendor had been shot once in the head.

According to reports, Perez was rushed to Community Regional Medical Center where he ultimately died.

Witnesses of the murder told officers that a man had beckoned Perez to come over to him in a way that suggested he was going to purchase something from him.

According to police reports, when Perez walked up to the suspect, the man pulled out a gun and shot the vendor. He then stole a few items, which have not been identified, and flew the scene. Witnesses told police officers that they’d seen the man loitering around the area before the shooting.

A local news station reported that “Officers are now looking into surveillance footage from the area to try and identify the shooter… Through a statement, Fresno City Council President Luis Chavez announced that he will be offering a $5000 reward for information leading to the shooter’s arrest.”

“The coward that murdered our food vendor, turn yourself in and face the consequences. You’ve brought tremendous pain to a family and our city,” Chavez exclaimed in the statement.

To help the Perez family, Councilmember Esmeralda Soria set up a GoFundMe account which has already raised $141,780 out of its $125,000 goal.

Perez’s son, Isai, described his father in a recent interview as a “great man.”

“My father was a great man. He was a great father, a great husband, a great friend,” he said in an interview. “He spread love and kindness. He was about fairness, he wanted to share his happiness. He meant no harm. He didn’t deserve to go like this. The person who killed my dad took away a part of me. My dad went through everything for us. He took away my father. He took away the opportunity of me being with him in his last moments and it’s heartbreaking. I hope they find the murderer soon.”

If you have any information on the shooting please call Valley Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-STOP.
