A teenage girl testified Monday that she was “yelling and telling them to stop” as two Glenbard West High School football players forced her to have sex with them in a church parking lot almost two years ago.

The girl was the first witness at the trial of former Glenbard student Demarco Whitley, now 19, who is charged with sexually assaulting her an hour before he was severely injured in a car crash that killed the other teen accused in the attack, Pierre Washington-Steel.

The girl testified for about two hours Monday following opening statements in which prosecutors contradicted claims by Whitley’s attorney that the sex was consensual.
