Two arrested on kidnapping, rape charges

RED WING - Red Wing police have arrested two suspects in connection with the alleged kidnap and sexual assault of a local 17 year-old female.

Police on Friday arrested Calvin Kenterrius Horsley, 24, Red Wing on a search warrant at 419 Hill St. On Saturday, police arrested Antwon Lorenzo Howard Jr., 18, at 422 1/2 Hill St.

Both men were being held on suspicion of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and kidnapping.

The abduction allegedly occurred Sept. 4 around sunset as the girl was walking down a sidewalk on South Park Street. The alleged victim said she was forced into a white van and taken to a residence where she was sexually assaulted.

Police said initial details were incomplete, but in a follow-up interview, the girl provided the identities of the suspects and the location of the alleged assault.

The girl said she hesitated to provide the information earlier for fear of retaliation. She said the suspects told her they would kill her if she told what happened.

Police are still working a second abduction case involving a woman, 30, who was forced into a white minivan Sept. 11 at Potters Ridge Assisted Living in Red Wing. There may be a connection between the two cases, police say, though no substantial information has yet linked them.

Anyone with information on the cases should call Red Wing police at (651) 385-3155 or the tip line at (651-) 267-2699.
