Rape is charged, victim being sought

July 14, 1992

The Baltimore County state's attorney's office said yesterday that a man who recently admitted raping a 16-year-old girl can be charged with the offense even though the victim has not yet been located.

Kreskin M. Torres, 23, of the 700 block of E. 20th St. in the city, has been charged with first-degree rape. A District Court judge in Towson yesterday denied bail for Mr. Torres and remanded him to the Baltimore County Detention Center.

Sgt. Stephen R. Doarnberger, a county police spokesman, said the state's attorney's office decided that the charge could be lodged against Mr. Torres based on his admission of the crime, physical evidence found at the scene and a statement from an

eyewitness.

Sergeant Doarnberger said the suspect admitted to committing a rape at about 3 p.m. June 23 at Old Court Road near Church Lane in Randallstown.

Police are attempting to find the victim and are asking anyone with information to call the Sex Crimes Unit at 887-2223.
