SCHOOL FOUL-UP IN RAPE (Delay telling cops)

Staffers at the Hawthorne Cedar Knolls residential school in Hawthorne, a Westchester school for disturbed kids waited four hours to report the beating and rape of a 13 year old girl, holding their own probe and even collecting forensic evidence.  The attack occurred at 7:30 p.m. Monday, when the boys, Mario Rivera, 15, of Brooklyn; Stanford Beaulieu, 15, of The Bronx; and Gyale Taylor, 16, of Yonkers, dragged the girl into a vacant building while punching and slapping her.  Then they ripped off her clothes and raped her.  The victim reported the rape to staffers immediately, but the school waited four hours, until 11:30 p.m., while employees conducted their own investigation.  The suspect were held without bail at their arraignment yesterday.
