Police: Man attempts to rape 13 year-old girl
LAKE CITY, Fla. -- Police in Lake City say a 13-year-old girl was walking to her grandmother's house in Lake City Sunday evening when a man forced her into his car and attempted to rape her.
Gerome L. Robinson, 18, asked the girl if she wanted to hang out. When she replied "no" Robinson then grabbed her and pushed her into his backyard. The suspect started to take off his clothes until he was nude and tried to do the same to the girl. She shoved him to the ground then ran away.
An officer with the police department located Robinson at his residence at 918 Cherry Lane and interviewed him. He told officers "the devil tried to rape her in my body."
Robinson was arrested and booked on a $55,000 bond.
