A 30-year-old mom from Sioux Falls, S.D. is scheduled to appear in court on June 5 to face charges after her live-in boyfriend came home last night with the couple’s four-year-old son to find the woman naked with three young boys who ranged in age from seven through 10. Anne Elizabeth Doubler, who resides in the 600 block of N. Lewis Avenue in Sioux Falls, will be facing charges of three counts each of first-degree rape, sexual contact with a child younger than 16 and sexual exploitation of a minor.
ABC News reported that when the boyfriend arrived back home at the apartment he shared with Doubler, not only she, but the three young boys were all naked. Police say that the boys weren’t related to Doubler, but that they lived in the general vicinity of her apartment. And now police in Sioux Falls fear there may be more young victims out there.
When the boyfriend walked in, the three young boys scattered and ran from the apartment. The boyfriend called the cops, who caught up with the young victims a short time later. The boys confirmed that there was sexual contact with Doubler.
A mother of one of the boys told reporters that she didn’t realize “what was happening in Doubler’s home.” That mom, knowing that Doubler had a young child of her own and always seeing a lot of toys around, just figured her son was going over to Doubler’s apartment to play with her son. “She thought the children were playing together.”
A spokesperson for the Sioux Falls Police Department, Sam Clemens, said that the boyfriend and Doubler’s young son were shocked when they arrived home yesterday. The Argus Leader quoted Clemens as saying, "They walked in to the apartment and ended up seeing her completely naked."
Of the three victims, two are brothers. Two of the kids Doubler allegedly sexually assaulted are seven years old and one boy is 10. All of the boys live in the surrounding apartments, according to Clemens. Sioux Falls’ police are looking into the possibility of more victims, “one could be as young as 5-years-old,” according to KELO.
"This is something we don't see very often," Clemens said. "When we're talking about multiple victims, especially at one time, that's unusual."
