Berkeley police received two reports of sex-related offenses Wednesday, one involving a rape and one involving unlawful sexual intercourse.
A woman reported a rape that took place Wednesday about 4 a.m. at a local motel. According to Capt. Bobby Miller of the Berkeley Police Department, the rape took place between two acquaintances. The victim had agreed to engage in some sexual activity with the suspect but did not wish to have sexual intercourse with the suspect.
Also on Wednesday, police took a report on a case of unlawful sexual intercourse involving a 17-year-old girl who had a sexual relationship with a 27 year old man that began Jan. 7 and continued through March.
Miller said the girl and the older man began a plutonic relationship several months prior to their first sexual encounter.
The victim told police that she did not plan to have a physical relationship with the man because she didn’t have strong feelings for him, but nevertheless entered a consensual sexual relationship with him.
