Witnesses at a Kennewick convenience store called police after a 14-year-old girl and her 19-year-old boyfriend assaulted a 15-year-old girl in the parking lot. When officers arrived they learned they were trying to force her to have sex with a 30 year old for $60. They had also taken naked photos of the girl to advertise her in Seattle.

The incident occurred on June 12 at the 7-11 store on Neel and and Clearwater.  The 14-year-old girl threatened the victim because the refusal had cost her $400. A 16-year-old girl was also helping track the victim after the refusal.

The man, Deepak Singh-Samra of Kennewick, was arrested after a warrant was issued June 27. He was located at 3523 West Hood Street E206. The 14 and 16-year-old girls were arrested for promoting commercial use of a minor and second degree assault with intent to commit a felony.

The man is facing the same charges. Sgt. Ken Lattin said there is still an open investigation and others may be involved.

Anyone with knowledge or information on this case is urged to report it via Tri-Cities Crimestoppers at 586-TIPS (8477).
