Police: Man locked up, raped young girl

February 9th, 2010 by

www.wivb.com — Buffalo Police say he locked up a 13-year-old girl and raped her for months.

Michael Abdallah faces several charges from rape to unlawful possession of marijuana.

Monday, we get our first look at the man police are calling a criminal.

Buffalo Police arrested Abdallah Friday for allegedly forcing a minor to have sex.

News 4 obtained the booking report for 26-year-old Michael Abdallah of Thomas Avenue.

According to police, the defendant had sex with a13-year-old runaway for more than a year and kept her locked in a house.

The report goes on to say authorities found marijuana inside the home.

“He’s not that kinda guy,” said a Thomas Street neighbor.

One neighbor who didn’t want to be identified says the Abdallah she knows, wouldn’t hurt anyone. “Michael has been in the neighborhood for a while. He’s not a bad guy. Whenever he can help or offer a hand to somebody he will. A 13-year-old girl in his house? I don’t know exactly the situation.”

“There’s probably a possibility that she needed a place to stay or she could have lied about her age. Things like that happen all the time, but he’s not that kind of person,” said a neighbor.

Police say a one-year-old boy was also at the house. Abdallah claims he is his son.

Neighbors tell News 4 his sister is Etidel Abdallah. She was the 21-year old-Lackawanna woman who disappeared in September of 2008, only to later contact her family to say she was fine.

Meanwhile, Abdallah pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Saturday.

He faces several charges including rape and unlawful imprisonment.

Abdallah is scheduled to appear in court for a felony hearing later this week.

    Sounds like a miracle the girl escaped. He should serve solitary locked up in a barn with no heat for a year, after he heals up from castration.
