SAVANNAH, GA (December 22, 2014): Follow-up investigations into the rape of an unconscious woman in a parking lot on Nov. 30 have led to charges against a second suspect.
Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police have charged Eric Reyes Castro, 26, with being a party to the crime of rape after the off-duty Metro Special Victims Unit detective who interrupted the attack continued his investigation.
Andy Fabricio Carcamo, 22, of Pooler was arrested on Sunday, Nov. 30, after the two off-duty officers found him in the back seat of a locked car in a downtown parking lot with the unconscious victim about 1 a.m. They had been directed toward the car by a visiting member of the military who reported seeing two men taking an unconscious woman to a car.
The officers had been approached by a California man who saw two males carrying the woman towards the parking lot and became concerned. The officers approached the car and interrupted the attack on the woman who was drifting in and out of consciousness.
At the time, Police Chief Joseph H. Lumpkin Sr. lauded the efforts of the bystander who became involved when he realized a stranger could be in jeopardy of being harmed.
“Police can’t be everywhere at all times and this was a case where a young woman was in serious danger,” Lumpkin said. “Because of the efforts of this gentleman and these officers, a dangerous suspect is off our streets. And we may never know what additional harm to this victim was prevented.”
