Greensburg teen charged with rape

GREENSBURG, Ind. — A Greensburg teenager was arrested and is being charged as an adult after being accused of rape and criminal confinement.

According to police, Paul W. Rose, 17, is facing charges of Rape, Sexual Battery, and Criminal Condiment.

Under Indiana law, the case can be tried in adult court due to the age of Rose and the severity of the charges.

Police say the incident occurred in January.

Investigators met with the young girl in February when she told them that the encounter started off consensual, but she said later that evening it escalated and she told Rose to stop, but he continued and wouldn’t let her leave.

A $10,000 bond was set on Wednesday, and a jury trial has been scheduled for July 26.
