A 14-year-old girl has told police she was raped about three months ago while jogging on Reliance Road in Telford. She told police it happened on a Saturday night, possibly May 21, but she did not report it until Saturday, August 13, because she was extremely scared. She said she ignored a man when he called to her from the van he was driving, but he pulled over near NAPA Auto Parts and the Greenhouse Tavern, grabbed her and pulled her into the back of the van, where he raped her before releasing her. She told police the man was white and 30 to 35 years old, wearing blue jeans and smelling of smoke. She said the van was dark-colored on the outside, dirty on the inside, and it may have been used for construction work.
