A man has been charged with rape after a 14 year-old woman was allegedly raped in the Boston area.
The accused, who has not been named, was arrested on Wednesday in Somerville, Massachusetts after a woman said he raped her on the streets of Boston on March 13.
The girl’s mother called police to report that her daughter was sexually assaulted and taken to the city’s Logan Square, a popular spot for backpackers.
She said she and her friends saw the man, who was wearing a red hooded sweatshirt and jeans, get into a car and drive away.
The boy’s mother said the man later told her the girl was with someone else and that he had raped her.
The teenager said she was at the mall with friends on March 14 and told her friend she had a boyfriend, police said.
She was able to convince the other girl to leave with her friends, and the boy went home, according to a police report.
On March 15, the girl told police she had been raped by the man.
She told police the man had forced himself on her at a car wash and drove her to a house.
The two women then went to a restaurant and the man asked them for money.
The man allegedly told the women they would have sex and then told them he would have a glass of water to wash his hands.
He said he wanted to give them both water, and he then took off his hooded sweat shirt and raped the girl, police told ABC News.
The victim said she did not feel safe and left the restaurant.
Police did not release the name of the man or the girl.
The suspect’s lawyer has said the woman had told her boyfriend she was 17 years old when she was attacked, ABC News reported.
The Boston Police Department declined to comment.
