A Montgomery County man charged with kidnapping and raping a 12-year-old girl told his friend that she was “fresh meat” before the friend raped her as well, according to arrest records filed in court this week in a case that includes alleged crimes committed in the District.
After the alleged attack in Montgomery, the 12-year-old spoke to detectives and participated in a texting sting in which one of the suspects made incriminating statements, according to the records. The two men were being held Friday in the Montgomery jail on $500,000 bonds, according to court records.
Officials identified the suspects as Enrique Carbajal, 24, and Victor Tome, 19, both of the 11500 block of Elkin Street in Wheaton. Detectives said that at least one of the suspects knows the girl’s mother.
According to the Montgomery court records, on March 26, Carbajal called the girl’s mother at her job and asked whether her daughter was at their D.C. address. The mother said the child was with her father, to which Carbajal said he wanted to go ring the doorbell and take the girl to lunch. The mother told him not to do that, according to the records.
The same day, Carbajal rang the doorbell of the residence in Northwest Washington, the girl answered, and he told her that her mother had given them permission to go to lunch, according to court records.
Authorities said the girl was sexually assaulted in her District residence between noon and 12:15 p.m. Carbajal is charged in a warrant with first-degree child sex offense, D.C. police said.
Court documents say Carbajal then took the girl to a van and that she was driven to Carbajal’s apartment in Wheaton, where they had lunch, and where police said he forced her into a bedroom and raped her.
The girl “stated she then opened the door and Tome came into the room,” court records say. “Carbajal stated to Tome that ‘fresh meat’ was there, referring to” the girl.
Tome then raped her, according to police.
Federal immigration agents have filed jail detainers on Carbajal and Tome, a jail official said Friday. Such detainers indicate that immigration officials believe they have grounds to deport someone.
