Police make an arrest in North Miami Beach rape case

Officials search for others involved

NORTH MIAMI BEACH - An arrest has been made in the case of a woman who was raped in North Miami Beach a few weeks ago.

Officials say this past weekend they made one arrest in the case , but are still searching for others who were involved in the crime.

According to detectives, on Jan. 16, the woman was picking up take-out at a Creole restaurant along 167th Street when she was kidnapped by two armed men in the rear parking lot of the building.

The woman was then forced into the back seat of a vehicle and driven away.

The men then pulled into a BP gas station on Northeast 8th Avenue and used the victim's credit card to fill their car's tank.

From there they went across the street to a Wells Fargo bank, where they forced the woman to withdraw several hundred dollars from the ATM.

Investigators say they spent the next several hours driving around, sexually assaulting the victim.

Detectives have not released the identity of the person arrested, but they do say the arrested juvenile was charged with armed sexual battery, armed carjacking, armed kidnapping, and possession of marijuana.

Anyone with information about this case can contact Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
