A Washington, D.C., man was arrested after he allegedly raped two 12-year-old girls he met on Instagram, according to police.
Luis Quevedo, 19, was taken into custody in connection with two sexual assaults that occurred months apart, detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Youth and Family Services Division, Physical and Sexual Abuse branch announced Friday, according to Fox 5 DC.
In August, Quevedo, then 18, picked up one of the girls from her home in Maryland and drove her to his residence in the 1400 block of Columbia Road in Northwest D.C. Police said Quevedo raped the child inside his home.
