A 25-year-old man whom police identified as a Level 2 sex offender was arrested today on a charge of second-degree rape following the Wednesday night assault of a 14-year-old girl.
Rotterdam police identified the suspect as Kyle W. Myers, of 2933 Woodbridge Ave.
Rotterdam Police Department received a call at about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday reporting a suspicious group of young people behind the Subway restaurant on Broadway.
Sgt. Dan Ryan said when he arrived he found a 14-year-old girl who said she had been sexually assaulted.
The suspect had fled, police said, but their investigation led to the arrest of Myers today.
Myers was arraigned before Rotterdam Town Justice Kevin Mercoglan who ordered him held in the Schenectady County Jail with bail set at $30,000. He is scheduled to return to court on Monday.
