Staten Island man charged with raping 11-year-old girl

A Staten Island man was arrested in a Queens hotel Sunday morning and charged with raping an 11-year-old girl, police said.

Andre Clarke, 45, allegedly raped the young girl inside her Brooklyn apartment in Brownsville around 9 a.m Saturday, police said.

The girl was taken to a local hospital in stable condition.

Clarke fled in a car following the alleged rape but was arrested after he was found in Queens.

The relationship between Clarke and the victim is unknown at this time, police said.

He is facing three counts of rape, sexual assault, and acting in a manner injurious to a child.

“Andre Clarke, the suspect from yesterday’s rape has been apprehended. Excellent work by Brooklyn North Violence Felony Squad and Special Victims for locating the suspect and making the apprehension,” Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison announced on Twitter Sunday morning.

Police are looking into the possibility that there were other victims.
