Original release (November 13, 2015  10 a.m.):

A Baltimore City School teacher has been charged with having sex with a 15-year-old girl in his Parkville home.

Just after 3 p.m. on November 10, police responded to an area hospital for a sex offense report. After an examination at the hospital, the victim was taken to a secure location to be interviewed.

The initial investigation indicates that the 15-year-old female victim visited the suspect’s home on November 9. The suspect is a family friend who happens to be a Baltimore City School teacher. The girl's mother sent her to the suspect's home for help with a school assignment. While at the suspect’s home, the victim and the suspect drank alcoholic beverages supplied by the suspect. He later took the victim into the living room and had intercourse with her. Later that night, the suspect had intercourse or sexual contact with the victim multiple times. 

The investigation indicates that the victim (whose age makes her unable to consent under any circumstances to sex with this suspect) was incapacitated and unable to fend off the suspect.
 
The suspect does not teach at the school the victim attends. At this time, the investigation has not identified any other victims.

The suspect is 39-year-old Taki Kentae Lewis of the 9500 block of Orbitan Court 21234. He has been charged with second-degree rape, sexual abuse of a minor, and related charges. Lewis is held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $400,000 bail.

This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Crimes Against Children Unit.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 410-307-2020.
