A man was taken into custody Wednesday for the rape of a 12-year-old girl.
Metro police said the girl immediately reported the alleged incident and police were contacted right away.
According to the affidavit, the victim reported that Asif Raza, 24, led her behind an apartment building and forcefully raped her.
The girl described, in detail, what happened and told police that he kissed her on her mouth, neck and breasts.
The 12-year-old also reported pain in the areas where he “penetrated” her.
Once in custody, Raza admitted to police that he “mounted” the victim after removing her clothing. He told police he “thought she was 18 or 19 maybe,” the affidavit stated.
Raza was charged with two counts rape of a child and one count aggravated sexual battery and booked into the Metro jail on a $550,000 bond.
