THE BRONX, N.Y. -- (WPIX) -- A teenager accused of raping an 11-year-old girl in the bathroom of a Bronx park earlier this month was found dead of an apparent suicide, police sources say.
Police found 16-year-old Zevin Agusto dead on Monday.
Agusto is accused of raping the girl on Oct. 14, an NYPD spokesperson said. He’d asked her to come into a public bathroom at Hilton White Park and then attacked her.
The girl went home and told people there what had happened. She was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
The victim knows her attacker “from the neighborhood,” but she doesn’t know him well at all, an NYPD spokeswoman said.
