Man Arrested For Raping Teenage Acquaintance
A local man has been arrested for raping a teenage acquaintance in the Far Rockaway home where he was staying, police say.
Everton Whitley, 26, allegedly attacked the unidentified 16-year-old girl by pushing aside her underpants and penetrating her as she slept on a mattress on the floor of a bedroom in the home in which he was living at 12-24 Channing Road on April 18, police and court sources say.
The teenage girl had reportedly been baby-sitting for three young children, all under the age of six, who were present in the room when the rape took place.
The next morning, sources say, Whitley allegedly ordered the girl to strip and he raped her again.
Upon arriving home, the victim told her mother and her mother called the police, who arrested Whitley.
Whitley was charged with rape and endangering the welfare of a child, according to court records.
