An El Salvadorian national was recently charged with rape in Montgomery County, Maryland, making him the fifth illegal immigrant to be arrested for sexual assault in the county in just the last month.
Nelson Reyes-Medrano, 46, was charged and arrested for rape earlier this month following allegations that he crawled into the bed of a 16-year-old girl and raped her at knifepoint, according to a police report.
Reyes-Medrano held a knife to the young girl’s throat and ordered her to undress. When the victim did not do so quickly enough, he tore off her clothes and proceeded to rape her, the police report says.
NEW: Nelson Reyes-Medrano is accused of crawling into bed with a 16yo Germantown, Md. girl as she napped. The 46yo proceeded to rape the teen at knifepoint, police say.
