According the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, they arrested another suspect in connection with an alleged sexual assault in Harrisburg last week.

The suspect, a 16-year-old male from Council Bluffs, Iowa was arrested by authorities in Council Bluffs Friday evening. The suspect, who is charged with First Degree Rape and Sexual Contact with a Child Under 16, is being held at a juvenile detention facility pending a court appearance next week.

Bond has been set at $25,000.00 cash.

On Wednesday, the sheriff's office said they recieved a call from the hospital about a 12-year-old girl, who claims she was raped by three men at a home in Harrisburg last week.

They say the suspects and the victims all knew each other and the rape happened at 19-year-old Obadiah Loyira's home, who is still wanted in connection to the case.

Authorities say he goes by 'Jay' or 'J.J.' and is six feet tall and 180 lbs.

According to court documents, a search warrant was served to 'J's' home, where detectives spoke with the suspect, who admitted to having sexual intercourse with the 12-year-old girl along with having explicit pictures of her on his phone.

If you have any information about Loyira, you're urged to call the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office at (605)764-5651 or CrimeStoppers at 1-877-367-7007.
