OAKLEY — Detectives say an Oakley man tried to rape a 15-year-old girl at her home.
Riley Thomas Mitchell, 24, is charged with two counts of felony lewd conduct with a child under 16, one felony count of attempted rape, felony battery with the intent to commit a serious felony and misdemeanor false imprisonment.
The girl told Cassia County Sheriff detectives that Mitchell was at her home and went into her bedroom on Dec. 10.
She asked him if he was going to be sleeping in one of the other bedrooms at the house and he told her “no, yours.”
The girl said Mitchell pushed her to the floor and tried to kiss her but she was able to get out from under him. He then grabbed her in a hug with his left arm and undid his pants with his other hand.
The girl told police she tried to get away but Mitchell overpowered her and repeatedly tried to undress her as she fought back.
A preliminary hearing is set for Sept. 15 in Cassia County Magistrate Court.
