BURLEY— Police say a Burley man grabbed a teenage neighbor girl by the hair, threw her on the living room floor and raped her.

Marcial Orellana-Castro, 38, is charged with felony counts of rape, sexual battery of a minor child age 16 or 17, battery with intent to commit a serious felony and two counts of forcible sexual penetration by use of a foreign object, according to court documents.

Cassia County Sheriff investigators said the mother of the 16-year-old girl reported the crime on July 25, 2016.

St. Luke’s Children at Risk Evaluation Services conducted an interview in August 2016, where the girl said she was at a neighbor’s home at a mobile home park south of Burley, when Orellana-Castro asked her to give him a back rub, then started touching her sexually.
