Prosecutors will review the rape allegation of an Edison High School student.
Detectives with the Erie County Sheriff's Office have interviewed a 16-year-old boy accused of raping a teenage girl multiple times at his family's Milan Township home, Chief Deputy Jared Oliver said. The girl's mother reported the allegations Monday.
"This matter has been investigated and has been referred to the prosecutor's office to see if criminal charges are warranted," Oliver said.
The girl reported getting a ride with the boy in May while under the impression they were going out to eat. Instead, the suspect reportedly drove them to his parents' house while they were away and made her perform sexual acts on him in his parked car near the residence, according to a deputy's report.
Oliver said the suspected incidents happened over the course of about the last six months.
"They are high-school age. They both are students in the Edison school district," the sheriff's spokesman said.
The girl said she didn't report the alleged rapes because she was afraid and didn't want the suspect's friends to harass her, according to a deputy's report.
