Authorities have arrested a 32-year-old man living in southeast Nebraska on suspicion of raping a 13-year-old girl he met while singing in a local church choir.
Raymundo M. Cruz - also known as Luis Lopez-Muniz and Raymundo Perez - remains in the Lancaster County Jail on $300,000 bond.
The girl told police she met Cruz about a year ago and the two became friends. She says on July 17, he asked to meet her to discuss a mutual friend. The girl says Cruz drove her to a lake near Crete, where he raped her in the backseat of his SUV.
If convicted of first-degree sexual assault of a child, Cruz faces up to life in prison.
