According to a statement released by the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office, Marble called 911 early Saturday morning to report his 13-year-old “companion” had jumped out of his moving vehicle and disappeared.
As the responding officer was speaking with Marble, a young girl covered in road rash stumbled out of some nearby bushes and told the officer Marble had raped her. Marble was immediately taken into custody and the girl was transported to the hospital.
After the teen was treated, she told officers she had run away from home Thursday evening, after an argument with her mother. She ran into Marble at a gas station near her home and struck up a conversation. He offered her a ride, and she accepted.
Marble then drove her to an unknown location in the country, where the two smoked some pot together. She said dude came on to her, but she rejected his advances.
Undeterred, Marble reportedly tied her to a tree and raped her.
The girl said Marble drove around a little more and convinced her to try some meth, which he injected into her.
At some point, Marble used a razor blade and a knife to make superficial cuts to the girl’s leg. Police say he also carved his name into her skin.
The girl said she was raped at least two more times before she jumped from the truck and into the bushes. And though he threatened to kill her if she didn’t show herself, the kid stayed hidden. That led to the doofus calling 911.
Marble, who has a rather lengthy criminal record but no prior sex assault offenses, has been charged with numerous counts of sexual acts with a minor, kidnapping and child abuse.Tags: Bodega Bay, California, Child Abuse, Kidnapping, rape of a minor, Timothy Marble
