Middletown police responded to a local shopping center after they were called in reference to a rape. The girl was “very emotional” and was crying when she was interviewed at Atrium Medical Center, according to the report.

She told police that she and Gomez ate breakfast near the Towne Mall, then went shopping. They went back to his apartment and played video games, she told police.
