The son of a Pakistani diplomat has been charged with raping a 13-year-old girl from the Bronx that he met on the Whisper app.
Mehmood Ur Rehman Rahimoon, 20, of Scarsdale, New York was arrested this week for allegedly raping a minor.
Police say that the suspect is the son of Muhammad Mureed Rahimoon who is listed as being a community/welfare counselor for the Pakistani government on his Facebook page.
The New York Daily News reports that Mehmood met the teen on the Whisper app in October.
Whisper is an app where users can post things anonymously and communicate with other members.
Mehmood allegedly used other apps to get in touch with the 13-year-old girl and they later met in person.
Police say that the pair met several times and did not have intercourse until December 1 in a room at the Riveroad Motor Inn in the BRonx.
A friend of the teenager was allegedly in the bathroom while the event occurred and the teen’s father was waiting at school to pick up his daughter.
The concerned father called his daughter after she was not present at school pick-up.
She told him that she was working out in the park with her running club. Rahimoon then took the phone from the girl and said that the victim and her friend would be back to the school soon.
Police say that the alleged victim’s friend told the father about the alleged sexual encounter later that night.
Detectives ran an undercover investigation and told Rahimoon to meet the teen in Manhattan on Tuesday night.
Mehmood showed up in a car with State Department consul licence plates and was arrested by the authorities, reports The New York Daily News.
Mehmood, who does not have the diplomatic immunity, is charged with rape, sex abuse, and acting in a manner injurious to a child less than 17.
Mehmood’s father had no comment. Mehmood reportedly told police he had improper relations with the girl.
‘It’s shocking,’ said Mehmood’s sister. ‘I don’t believe this.’
Their sister said that her brother is a student at Westchester Community College.
