Man Charged In Rape Of 13-Year-Old Austin Girl

Updated: Friday, July 26 2013, 03:40 PM CDT

An Austin man is accused of raping a 13-year-old girl in June.

Donald Ray Lewis is charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child.

According to an arrest affidavit, the 13-year-old ran away from the Settlement Home on Payton Gin Road in North Austin. The Settlement Home is a placing agency for foster children.

On June 30, she met a woman who brought her to a nearby apartment.  She told investigators she smoked crack with the woman and Lewis.  Then she went to a bedroom where Lewis had sex with her, according to the affidavit.

The girl said she stayed at the apartment for several days and had sex with several other men, the affidavit said.

After she reported the crime, the girl showed detectives the apartment where it happened. Lewis lived there and she picked him out of a photo lineup, according to the affidavit.

The same victim was involved in another sexual assault case. 

She told police it happened on June 29 at a different location. Three men brought her to an apartment where she was sexually assaulted by seven to 10 men while they recorded it with their cellphones, another arrest affidavit said.

The girl said she was driven to an unknown location and told by one of the men to "find somewhere to go." She asked to use a cellphone and called her foster brother to pick her up, but he refused, according to court documents.

Police say they were able to track the men down from the phone call the girl made to her foster brother. She had borrowed one of her attacker's phones and her foster brother's caller ID recorded his number.

Two of the men, Juan Lozano Ortega, 24, and Edgar Gerargo Guzman Perez, 26, are under arrest and charged with sexual assault.
