Police arrested a suspect for allegedly raping a 13-year-old girl in Canarsie earlier this week, according to authorities.
The victim told police that the 29-year-old man allegedly engaged her in conversation shortly before midnight on Nov. 11, before leading her into a building near E. 102 Street and Avenue and sexually assaulting her, according to police.
The teen was transported to an area hospital in stable condition, and she was later released, cops said.
