RICHMOND, Calif. – Authorities have arrested a seventh suspect in the gang rape of a teenage girl outside a high school homecoming dance in Northern California.
Richmond police Sgt. Bisa French said 43-year-old John Crane Jr. walked into the police station and turned himself in without incident Tuesday evening.
French said Crane was being held on $100,000 bail on suspicion of felony sexual assault.
Investigators identified Crane last week as a suspect in the Oct. 24 sexual assault of a 16-year-old girl outside Richmond High School. Police describe him as an ex-con with a history of violent crime.
Six other males ages 15 to 21 have pleaded not guilty in connection with the rape and related charges.
