Three men face multiple felony charges after they were accused of raping a 17-year-old girl.
The Waupaca County district attorney’s office filed 14 counts each against two New London men, Reyes Castellanos, 22, and Esteban Guerrero, 18, and Alejandro Ortego-Hernandez, 20, of Weyauwega.
The charges include five counts of felony sexual assault, kidnapping, abduction of a child, child enticement, sexual intercourse with a child, felony intimidation of a victim and false imprisonment.
The girl told New London police that she had prior contact with Castellanos through Facebook. She knew him as Brian Reyes and that he lived in a mobile home at Northgate Estates in New London.
According to the criminal complaint, Castellanos contacted the girl on Saturday, Dec. 17, regarding directions to a concert at the Brown County Expo Center. She met up with Castellanos and two other men at the expo center and rode back to New London with them after the concert.
While they were sitting in the back seat of a gray Dodge Durango, Castellanos allegedly began kissing the girl and grabbing her. The girl said Castellanos forcibly removed her clothes and raped her during the trip between Appleton and New London. The other two men allegedly raped her in the back seat after they parked the vehicle in Northgate Estates in New London.
The girl said the men would not allow her to leave the vehicle. Later, she escaped and ran to another trailer and pounded on the door until it was answered. New London police were called out to the mobile home park at approximately 3:40 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 18.
Based on the girl’s descriptions of the men and the vehicle, investigators were able to trace the Durango to Ortego-Hernandez. When they arrived at Ortego-Hernandez’s apartment in Weyauwega, they also located Guerrero.
Police found a silver piece of jewelry in Guerrero’s pocket that matched the girl’s description of a charm that had been on a necklace that was taken from her during the incident. Guerrero also lives with Castellanos at Northgate Estates.
Guerrero and Ortego-Hernandez are both being held in the Waupaca County jail on a $25,000 cash bond. Castellanos is in custody on a $50,000 cash bond in Outagamie County, where he has also been charged with rape.
