Indianapolis Man Questioned In Rape Of 15-Year-Old

Last updated on Tuesday, October 30, 2012

(BLOOMINGTON) - An Indianapolis man is cooperating with Bloomington police in an investigation of the reported molestation and rape of a 15-year-old.

A Bloomington girl reported to a school counselor she had been sexually assaulted multiple times since September 2011, when she was 14.

The school counselor informed the Indiana Department of Child Services, and the case was forwarded to the Bloomington Police Department.

The suspect, Damon Moss, 39, was arrested Oct. 10 in Indianapolis on an unrelated active warrant in Hamilton County and was taken to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department, where he was interviewed, BPD Sgt. Dana Cole said.

Moss is currently facing preliminary felony charges of sexual misconduct with a minor.

Cole says rape charges have yet to surface due to conflicting accounts of whether the acts were consensual.

Moss turned himself in to Bloomington police at the station at about 2 p.m. Thursday.
