Annapolis Police Searching for Alleged Child Rapist

Annapolis police are searching for a 37-year-old man who allegedly raped a seven-year-old girl.

Pedro Orellana, also known as Michael Arnison, was staying on Summerfield Court for the past few weeks. During that time, police say he raped the girl more than once.

She told a staff member at her school about the alleged assaults. The girl said Orellana threatened to harm her mother if she told police.

Investigators say they spoke with the girl and believe her account of Orellana's actions is credible.

He is charged with first-degree sex offense and assault.
