ZEBULON, N.C. (WGHP) -- A 33-year-old man who doesn’t speak English used a translator on his phone to tell a girl he had just allegedly raped that she looked pretty, according to warrants obtained by WNCN.
Victor Emandes-Ramirez was arrested Jan. 9 following an investigation into a reported sexual assault that occurred earlier that same day, the Wake County Sheriff’s Office said.
Around 7:35 a.m., deputies were called to a Wake County high school in reference to a reported rape that occurred off Pearces Road north of Zebulon.
The 15-year-old victim told investigators a man named “Victor” kidnapped her as she walked to her bus stop and drove her to a shed behind a nearby home, warrants state. The suspect allegedly raped the teen in the shed before taking her back to his car, warrants say.
While the suspect drove the victim to her school, the suspect used Google Translate on his phone to tell the victim she looked pretty and to not tell her brothers what happened.
Emandes-Ramirez was arrested and processed at the Wake County Detention Center at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 9.
He’s charged with first-degree kidnapping, statutory rape of a child 15 years of age or younger, and statutory sex offense with a child 15 years of age or younger.
