Husky Charged with Rape Night After Winning Kick
Patterson Mill junior Kyle Reddish has been charged with raping a 14-year-old girl.
A 16-year-old Patterson Mill junior football player has been charged with raping an intoxicated 14-year-old girl a day after he kicked the game-winning field goal against crosstown rival Bel Air, according to court records.
UPDATE: Reddish's lawyer said his accuser's brother assaulted him in school.
A Facebook group has been created in defense of Reddish.
Kyle Burnett Reddish of the 200 block of Kensington Parkway in Abingdon, who was instrumental in the Huskies' 9-7 win Sept. 16, has been charged as an adult with second-degree rape, second-degree sex offense, second-degree assault, third-degree sex offense and sodomy, according to online court records.
According to Harford County District Court charging documents, the incident occurred between 11 p.m. Saturday and 12:10 a.m. Sunday at the girl’s house.
Charging documents state that the 14-year-old’s sister took her to bed “fully clothed” around 11 p.m., then “went to the basement with several boys to listen to music.”
Reddish then went up to the girl’s room, undressed her and repeatedly forced her to perform sexual acts, charging documents state. The girl “consumed a large amount of alcohol earlier in the evening, she had gotten sick and vomited,” the documents add.
The girl’s sister told police she went upstairs and heard “whimpering” coming from her sister’s bedroom. When she went inside she alleges she saw Reddish, who was only wearing a sweatshirt, having sex with her sister, according to charging documents. She then ran from the room “freaked out.”
At about 12:10 a.m., the 14-year-old girl’s father came home and went to his daughter’s bedroom where he saw Reddish, who was “completely naked,” charging documents state. The father said in the documents that he ordered Reddish to leave the house.
The girl’s mother took her daughter to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center at about 6 p.m. Sunday, then to Greater Baltimore Medical Center at about 10:30 p.m. The girl suffered multiple injuries, according to charging documents.
Harford County Public Schools manager of communications Teri Kranefeld said the issue is a criminal matter because it took place off school property.
“It’s a reportable offense and we were notified by the local authorities of the charge against the student,” Kranefeld told Patch via telephone Friday. “We’ve taken action at the school to ensure the safety of the school community. In terms of Mr. Reddish, any disciplinary action will be rendered pending the criminal investigation.”
Patterson Mill football coach Josh Mason had no comment when reached by telephone Friday. The Huskies (3-0) are scheduled to play at Perryville (3-0) at 6 p.m. Monday.
Reddish's parents could not be reached for comment.
Reddish was arrested Wednesday and released from the Harford County Detention Center after posting $50,000 bail Thursday.
