Foreign teen facing local rape charge

SARANAC LAKE -- A 19-year-old from London is behind bars accused of raping someone in the North Country.

Saranac Lake Village Police arrested Olabiyi Odumosu Wednesday afternoon on a single felony charge of third-degree rape.

He was arraigned in Village Court and later sent to the Essex County Jail on $15,000 cash bail or $30,000 bond, which he had not posted as of Thursday afternoon.

In a news release, officials said Odumosu had sex "with another person with such person's consent, where such lack of consent was by some factor other than incapacity to consent."

Police are continuing to look into the alleged incident and said additional arrests are pending.

Citing the active investigation, Village Police wouldn't release any additional information Thursday afternoon about Odumosu or the alleged rape that occurred sometime in September.
