Police have charged a Gary teen with the rape of a 68-year-old homeless woman at the Miller South Shore train station in Gary. The 16-year-old has been charged as an adult with multiple counts of rape, robbery and criminal deviate conduct.
The Tribune writes:

On Aug. 13 at 11:50 p.m. the victim sought refuge from the rain inside the station's passenger shelter and was eating a meal. Mosley allegedly entered the shelter on a bicycle minutes later. The teen produced a handgun and told the woman that if she did not comply with his demands he would kill her, according to police.

After raping the woman the teen got back on his bicycle and rode away, police said. The attack was caught on parking lot security cameras.

Aarion Teri Lee Mosley is a sophomore at Lew Wallace High School. He admitted his involvement in the attack, and police found a bicycle, clothing and a BB gun linking him to the attack.
