LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A local middle school student was held at gunpoint and raped according to a police report released today.

Antwon Perkins was arrested last week in connection with the kidnapping of a Cadwallader Middle School student.

According to the report, the 12-year-old girl was walking to school when Perkins got out of his truck and forced her into the vehicle. Police say Perkins threatened to shoot her and drove her to an unknown location where he raped her.


After the assault, Perkins cleaned her body with a cloth and brought her back to the kidnap location. The report says that Perkins threatened to kill her parents if she said anything about the attack, however she was able to give details to the police about the incident.

The report also says she asked Perkins what time it was when he dropped her off at the kidnap location. She was then able to determine that she was with him for 3 hours.
