Three teen burglary, rape suspects in police custody

The search for three suspects accused of breaking into a home and raping a woman in Aliquippa comes to an end after they are all taken into police custody.

Malakai Helencamp, 17, and Michael Guin, 19, turned themselves in after felony warrants were issued in connection with the incident on McMinn Street, reports WPXI. A third teen, 17-year-old Clarence Larue, was apprehended the day after the alleged crime took place and was taken into custody.


Aliquippa police Chief Don Couch told WPXI that police believe burglary was the initial motive for the “horrific, horrific crime.”

The victim told police that two men wearing masks entered the bedroom with small, black handguns.  She said the men asked, “Where is the money? Where is the weed at?” 

According to police, Larue and Helencamp raped the woman at gunpoint while Guin rummaged through the downstairs.  They escaped with the victim’s money, electronics and jewelry, and stole her fiance’s car. 

Larue was taken into custody after he was stopped in the stolen car by police.  He reportedly admitted to officers he engaged in robbery, rape and burglary with Helencamp and Guin.
