A woman and her husband have been arrested after they set up a Facebook page in order to lure and sexually assault teen girls.

The incidents occurred between 2016 and 2018 in Whitewater Township, Ohio and involved at least three teens.

Authorities say Shana Philpot created a Facebook page in which she used to interact with and befriend teen girls. She would then invite the teens to her home where the couple would provide them with alcohol and her husband Anthony Philpot would then sexually assault them.

During court proceedings, Shana’s attorney reported that Shana feared her husband and suffers from mental health issues.

Anthony was indicted this week three counts of rape, two counts of gross sexual imposition, and one count of kidnapping while Shana is facing three counts of complicity for allegedly helping her husband.

The couple are each being held on $250,000 bond.

Anthony additionally has been ordered to undergo STD testing.
