Police Looking For Rape Suspect; 2nd Man Arrested
Police are still asking for the public’s help in locating 19-year old Obadiah Loyira of Harrisburg in connection with the rape of a 12-year old girl at his residence. Loyira is described as a black male, 6-feet tall and 180 pounds. He is thought to be in Sioux Falls, but authorities say he is not a threat to the public and the suspect and victim are ‘familiar’ with each other.
Last week, 20-year old Elizeo Kalimba was arrested and charged with first degree rape and two counts of child pornography. Friday, a 16-year old Council Bluffs, Iowa male was also arrested in connection with this case on charges of first degree rape and sexual contact with a child under 16.
Loyira remains at large and sometimes goes by the name Jay or J.J. If you have any information, you’re asked to call the Lincoln County Sheriff Department at 605-764-5651 or Crimestoppers at 367-7007.
