(KMOV) -- A St. Louis County teenager has been charged in connection with attacking two women.
Authorities have charged Dannell Wise, Jr., 18, with several crimes including one count of forcible rape, two counts of kidnapping and one count of first-degree sexual misconduct.
Investigators were contacted by two women who said they were attacked outside the Sunswept Apartments.
The first victim says that she was in her car, waiting for her friend in the parking lot. As her friend approached, the two men allegedly came up to the victim’s car, displayed a handgun and robbed the woman and her friend.
The victims say that the two men then forced their way into the vehicle and told the woman to drive to another location. That’s when the men allegedly raped one of the women and sexually assaulted the other.
Wise was arrested in connection with this incident and is being held on $250,000 bond.
Police have not been able to identify the second suspect.
