Dayton man not facing charges in reported rape of teen girl

A Montgomery County grand jury on Thursday ignored charges against a Dayton man who had been accused in a May sexual assault of a teen girl.

Damarcus Skinner had been charged in Dayton Municipal Court with rape and unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, but those charges are dismissed.

DNA evidence had reportedly linked him to a May 5 sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl, according to an affidavit.

Bond was set at $250,000 for 22-year-old Damarcus Damon Anthony Skinner during his Thursday afternoon in Dayton Municipal Court for rape and unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

A 14-year-old girl told police she left school early and stopped behind a North Main Street building when an unknown man pulled up and told her to get into the car, according to an affidavit.

The girl said she was sexually assaulted but later kicked her attacker and got away.
