The Sacramento Police Department is investigating the alleged gang rape of a Tahoe Park man with developmental disabilities.
The alleged victim, Steven Greyeyes-Clouse, said he was filling in an adult coloring book at Tahoe Park on Friday afternoon when four men approached and exposed themselves to him. Greyeyes-Clouse said he tried to get away by fleeing into the bathroom, but an older man followed him in and threatened him with a knife. All five men then joined in and forced themselves on him, choking and beating him until he blacked out, Greyeyes-Clouse said. He said his alleged assailants also mocked him for being disabled while attacking him.
The Bee generally does not name victims of sexual assault. In this case, the alleged victim said he wants to speak out to ensure his assailants are caught. Greyeyes-Clouse, 29, told his story on Facebook and the social media platform Nextdoor, where his account has generated more than 100 responses since it was posted a day ago. He said the online support helps strengthen his resolve to speak out.
