The Philadelphia Police Special Victims Unit is investigating the rape of a 16-year-old girl in the area of 2nd and Tree Street in South Philadelphia Wednesday night. Police say a young man pulled the girl behind a plastic covering of a scaffold and raped her. Residents on Tree Street next to the scaffolding say they heard screams and saw the suspect walking away when they came out to investigate. Police were able to apprehend the suspect a few blocks away because of the heavy police presence in the area. The name of that suspect has not been released.
