MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. (ABC7) — Two Montgomery County Public School students — ages 20 and 19 — were recently arrested at their respective high schools, on allegations they raped different 11-year-old girls at apartments located off-campus.
Jonathan Coreas-Salamanca, 20, and Ivan Reyes Lopez, 19, are each charged with second-degree rape. Coreas-Salamanca has additional counts of sexual abuse of a minor and third-degree sexual offense.
According to law enforcement sources, police arrested Coreas-Salamanca on February 13, at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, where he is enrolled as a student. Six days later, on February 19, police arrested Lopez at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School where he is enrolled as a student.
Coreas-Salamanca is accused of providing an 11-year-old girl with a cell phone sometime last year. He allegedly used that device to exchange explicit text messages and photographs with the girl, plus arrange sexual meetups.
On Christmas Eve, the victim’s father came across the phone and was stunned to find scores of text messages describing “vaginal intercourse, fellatio, and cunnilingus.”
