Indiana teen accused of raping 90-year-old woman

ANDERSON, Ind. - A teenager has been formally charged with the rape of a 93-year-old Anderson woman, police announced Monday.

Iquise Taylor, 17, is charged with rape, burglary, criminal confinement and strangulation, and he has been waived to adult court.

Taylor is accused in the July sexual assault of 93-year-old Amelia Rudolf.

Scripps sister station RTV6 does not usually identify victims of sexual assault, but Rudolf and her family opted to attend and participate in an Anderson Police news conference Monday afternoon.

According to the probable cause affidavit, investigators found Taylor's DNA on Rudolf's body.

Police said Taylor lived within in a block of Rudolf's house near Pulaski Park, but they don't know if he targeted her specifically.

Sources told RTV6 that Taylor is familiar with the Madison County criminal justice system, but specific details about previous arrests or charges were not immediately released.

Officials did say that Taylor is a person of interest in another rape case, but investigators are awaiting lab results.

Taylor is being held on $100,000 bond.
