Police have identified the suspect they have in custody for the rape of a 13-year old girl who was on her way to school, as 23-year old, Quadir Jones. A 6 ABC Action News report said Jones was charged with the incident that happened near the subway exit at Broad & Race Streets at around 7:45 a.m. on Friday morning.
Jones reportedly approached the teen as she was exiting the subway at the Broad & Race surface exit. He indicated to the victim that he had a gun as he led her to a parking garage and then forced her to the garage’s stairway area, on the 1800 block of Cherry Street, where the rape reportedly took place.
Jones took the girls’ cellphone after the rape and only gave it back after she promised to save his number into her phone. The teen victim managed to make it to school, where she reported the incident. The school called Philadelphia Police, who teamed up with detectives to set up a trace on the victim’s phone. Jones was found and taken into custody that same day.
A 15-year old girl who was sexually assaulted about 15-minutes after the assault on the 13-year old, says she was initially approached while on the Broad Street subway by a suspect who attempted to strike up a conversation with her. When she got off of the Ridge Spur at Broad & Ridge, the suspect followed her and continued attempting to strike up a conversation with the teen. The suspect then told the victim he had a gun, while forcing her to an area below a staircase, where he attempted to sexually assault the victim. The rape was interrupted, but the report did not explain how.
Even though the rape was stopped, the rapist continued following the teen girl. He eventually forced her into an apartment, where a sexual assault took place. The teenager notified her school immediately after the incident.
The two victims did not attend the same school, according to the report.
