Sisters Sexual Assault Man with Pliers, Police Say

Two girls, one cup. And a pair of pliers.

Two Wisconsin sisters are facing sexual assault charges in connection with allegedly forcing a boy to drink a cup of urine, and then using pliers to pinch and twist the boy's penis.

On a scale of one to 10, "the pain to his penis was a 10," the police report states, according to the website The Smoking Gun.

Here's what else the report says about the sisters' bizarre alleged sexual assault with pliers:

The incident began when the sisters invited the boy to a mutual friend's house to hang out. Valerie Bartkey, 24, and Amanda Johnson, 17, were there chilling out and smoking pot -- but they allegedly turned violent after the boy made a joke, The Smoking Gun reports.

Bartkey and Johnson allegedly pounced on the boy, stomping on his neck and arm, then removing his shoes and urinating on them. Later, they forced the boy to drink a glass of their own urine.

As if that wasn't enough, the girls then allegedly forced the boy into a bedroom and ordered him to strip or face another assault, the police report says. Elder sister Bartkey also took off her clothes and said she wanted to have sex with the boy, according to the report.

But when the boy declined Bartkey's alleged sexual advance, she turned violent again. Bartkey "pulled on and twisted his penis with the pliers," the report says. Younger sister Johnson allegedly stood by with a belt in her hand; the boy told police he feared Johnson was going to hit him.

The incident ended when their mutual friend entered the room, took the belt from Johnson, and told the sisters to leave. The victim's grandmother drove the boy to a hospital.

Valerie Bartkey and Amanda Johnson face up to 25 years in prison if convicted of felony sexual assault and misdemeanor battery. Though assault and battery are similar, they're not exactly the same: A battery requires intentional contact with a victim, while an assault only requires a victim to fear imminent harmful contact.

Johnson could face even more punishment, because she allegedly called the victim and threatened him after he pressed charges for the sexual assault with pliers. Johnson is also charged with victim intimidation.
