Teen reportedly raped on walk to school

An Augusta teenager told law enforcement Sunday that she was raped along the 3800 block of Old Waynesboro Road about 9:30 a.m. on July 22.

The 17-year-old said she was walking to Cross Creek High School when a black male, armed with a rusty pocket knife, pulled her into a wooded area and raped her.

The teenager said she initially was too embarrassed to
report the crime to authorities and had discarded clothing she was wearing at the time, according to the report.
