Pellet gun taken from Savannah teen charged in two attempted rapes

handcuffsA Savannah teen who allegedly attempted to rape two women at gunpoint Thursday was using a pellet gun and was arrested a day later wearing the same clothes described by the victims.

The teen, who was not named apparently because he is a minor, was also carrying a pellet gun that looked like a real gun when he was arrested at 9 p.m. Friday near 37th and Reynolds streets, not far from the scene of both crimes in Forsyth Park and the 200 block of West Taylor Street.

In both incidents the victims in their 20s were approached by a black male wearing a striped sweater and both escaped.

The teen was charged with two counts of attempted rape, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of crime and taken to the regional youth detention center.
