Man Accused of Raping Unconscious 15-Year-Old in Tennessee

A 21-year-old man identified as Erik Santillan, an illegal alien from Mexico, has been charged with raping a 15-year-old girl who was unconscious in Hamilton County, Tennessee.

The charges against Santillan include aggravated rape.

The incident reportedly took place while the victim was at her friend’s house on June 20, 2022, when Santillan allegedly assaulted her.

According to a report by News Channel 9, the victim claimed that she and her friend accompanied Santillan to purchase alcohol after the friend’s parents had left the house to go grocery shopping. The three of them then consumed alcohol upon returning home, with Santillan reportedly drinking several beers.

It is alleged that the victim felt dizzy and laid down with her friend, only to wake up later and discover that she had been sexually assaulted, resulting in internal injuries as revealed by an examination.

When the victim approached Santillan’s aunt about the assault, the aunt reportedly tried to shield him from law enforcement out of fear.

The girl ultimately informed her parents, who promptly contacted the police.

Upon arriving at the scene, the friend’s father stated that he had not given anyone, including Santillan, permission to consume alcohol in the home.

The friend also admitted to witnessing Santillan raping the victim at some point.

Santillan fled and was suspected of returning to Mexico, but was eventually apprehended in Orlando, Florida. He was taken into custody on Sunday and is currently being held in Hamilton County Jail on a $500,000 bond.
