An ambulance delivers a California high school student to the hospital last week. Police say she was gang raped.
(CNN) -- A California high school student who police said was gang raped in a two-and-a-half-hour assault outside a homecoming dance remained hospitalized in stable condition Monday, two days after she was flown from the attack scene in critical condition.
As of late Monday, two suspects had been arrested in the case and a third was being questioned.
"There is one individual in custody who has made some spontaneous statements that have led me to believe that he is culpable for what happened," Richmond police Lt. Johan Simon said.
Nineteen-year-old Manuel Ortega, described as a former student at the school, was arrested soon after he fled the scene and will face charges of rape, robbery and kidnapping, police said.
A 15-year-old was later arrested and charged with one count of felony sexual assault. A third teenager was being interviewed, according to Lt. Mark Gagan of the police department in Richmond, California.
"Based on witness statements and suspect statements, and also physical evidence, we know that she was raped by at least four suspects committing multiple sex acts," Gagan said.
Investigators said as many as 15 people, all males, stood around watching the assault, but did not call police or help the victim, a 15-year-old student at Richmond High School in suburban San Francisco.
"As people announced over time that this was going on, more people came to see, and some actually participated," Gagan said.
Authorities had interviewed the victim, and the search for other attackers and bystanders who watched and did not report the rape was in "full-court press," according to Gagan.
"We have checked Facebook and YouTube to try to find any revealing evidence," he said. "We're looking in particular to see if anyone posted any video of the incident."
Several other individuals were detained at the scene but not arrested, Simon said.
The attack occurred on school grounds as the annual homecoming dance was under way inside the school Saturday night, authorities said.
The victim was found unconscious and "brutally assaulted" under a bench shortly before midnight Saturday, after police received a call from someone in the area who had overheard people at the assault scene "reminiscing about the incident," Gagan said.
"She ended up with those guys under her own will because she knew one of the boys who had gone to the high school before," Gagan said. "Right now, we're looking at toxicology reports to determine her blood-alcohol content and to determine if she was drugged."
According to authorities, the victim was flown to an area hospital in critical condition. She was in stable condition Monday, police said.
"This just gets worse and worse the more you dig into it," Gagan said. "It was like a horror movie after looking at the evidence. I can't believe not one person felt compelled to help her."

"To my mind it is wholly irresponsible to go into the world incapable of preventing violence, injury, crime, and death. How feeble is the mindset to accept defenselessness. How unnatural. How cheap. How cowardly. How pathetic." Ted Nugent
How could anyone who calls himself a man watch this without trying to stop it? How far we have fallen!
We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!
Every last one of um should be charged equally.... I mean especially the ones that watched and did nothing! PIGS all of um. The ones that participated in the rape, should never see a free sky again.
Standing around watching? YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!
I don't think I can say anything else without violating forum rules.
I think I will go pound my head against the wall for a while after I say a prayer for the girl.

As historical fact this kind of act against women has been happening here in America and as by Americans since the time of Columbus and the Mayflower thereafter.
This kind of event unfortunately occurs with regularity, everywhere, and as always has.

It is my opinion, that a sharp knife would fix the problem so that no other woman would have to worry about those who committed this crime. As to those who watched this crime and did nothing it might be the last thing they ever watch as they grope in darkness. Anyone of them could have walked away and called 911, this is not a bunch of heroes, just lowlifes.
The views expressed above are the opinion of the poster and may or may not be total bunk.
Viewer discretion is advised.
Sad...very, very sad. My view of RIGHT and WRONG gets solidified everyday by hearing stories like this in the news. Prayers to the victim and her family!
This type of stuff is not that uncommon. Here is a story about one that happened around here a few years ago, the girl was only 12, and since one of the guys was a football star they let him off with probation. Sadly the Judge in this case goes to our church. I am sure he would have not have taken the sentencing so lightly had it been his daughter.
