HOUSTON. The 25-year-old man faces serious charges after investigators said he kidnapped and raped a fugitive last week.
Lindell Tony Horton used a gun on Thursday to force a 13-year-old girl into his car, according to authorities. According to court records, he drove up to the house, where he used “physical force and violence” to force her to have sex with him eight to ten times over several hours.
The teenager eventually managed to break free and run away from home, officials said.
Authorities say Horton has been charged with aggravated kidnapping and the aggravated child sexual abuse charge is pending forensic examination in the sexual assault case.
Horton was arrested Friday and is being held on $500,000 bail. He is due to appear in court on Monday at 9 am.
