Man Rapes Tijuana Teen, Abandons Car

A teenaged Tijuana girl was allegedly raped by a “gringo" in the early morning hours of September 19, according to an article in the daily Frontera.

The 16-year-old girl was found in a state of distress inside a vehicle with California plates: a green 1996 Chevy Blazer, abandoned on Calle de los Llanos in the Colonia Granjas Familiares section of Tijuana.

The girl informed police that she had just been sexually assaulted by a man who picked her up in the vehicle, unwillingly, as she was walking along a street in another neighborhood.

She said a large fat man with a goatee pulled up alongside her and told her he had a gun and ordered her into the vehicle. She got into the Blazer and was driven by her abductor to the Granjas Familiares neighborhood, where she was then assaulted. Then her abductor left the girl and the car.

The man was wearing a baseball cap that had an “El Ranchero Night Club” logo with a TJ address on it; the Blazer had a decal on its rear window with the same logo. The victim told police that the man spoke to her only in English and said that he was from Arizona. She said he had Chinese letters tattooed on his left forearm.

Inside the vehicle, the investigating officers found a utility bill and a voter registration card with the same name on them. The vehicle had not been reported stolen.

A gringo all of the way out there? Voter registration card? Something smells funny. So I had to check.

Okay, according to Frontera newspaper, the girl was walking near Blvd. Cucapah, which is near the La Presa section, some eight miles south of where the alleged assault took place. The cap with the name of the nightclub, along with the sticker - "El Ranchero Night Club" - is located on Blvd. Cucapah as well (according to the article). The Mexican voter registration card and Mexican electricity bill contain the same name, which is Mexican, listed in the newspaper but I'll leave it out here since it would be incriminating without having all the facts. Car is left behind?

No idea what actually happened here, but this doesn't add up...
