A Dayton man was indicted Wednesday in the rape earlier this month of a 17-year-old girl authorities said he did not know.

Elyas Farhid Ahad, 45, is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court for rape, attempted rape and two counts of gross sexual imposition.

The sexual assault was reported to have happened June 1 on North Broadway Street in Dayton. The teen had been reported missing when she was found, according to a Dayton Municipal Court affidavit.

“There is one 17-year-old female victim, who was a stranger to the defendant,” said Greg Flannagan, spokesman for the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office.

Dayton police began an investigation after the teen reported it, he said.

While at Dayton Children’s Hospital, the teen reported Ahad pushed her down and assaulted her, according to court documents.

Ahad told a detective that he paid the teen for sex, an affidavit read.
