Second suspect in North Miami Beach restaurant rape case

North Miami Beach police arrested a second juvenile suspect in the sexual assault of a woman earlier this month.

According to police, the unidentified 17-year-old was also wanted in Miami-Dade County for an armed robbery.

The teen, who was in a blue Nissan, was stopped by police at about 1 p.m. Tuesday at Northeast Second Court and 58th Terrace.

A woman was picking up food from a restaurant in the 1000 block of North Miami Beach Boulevard Jan. 16 when she was approached by two armed men wearing gloves.

She was forced into a van and driven to the Oak Grove neighborhood of North Miami-Dade, where she was assaulted, according to police. The woman was driven around to various gas stations and restaurants before being dropped off at her home.

Police made an arrest over the weekend of another unidentified juvenile, who was charged with armed sexual battery, armed carjacking, armed kidnapping, and possession of marijuana.
