SHAKOPEE — A Shakopee High School student has been charged with criminal sexual conduct for allegedly luring a girl out of class and raping her in the boy’s locker room.

Eighteen-year-old Angel Torres Jr. was charged Thursday.

According to a criminal complaint, a 17-year-old girl told authorities that she had considered Torres a friend. He asked her to leave class and go to a water fountain on Tuesday, but then grabbed her and led her into the locker room. The girl said he took her into a handicapped stall, locked the door and raped her 15 to 20 minutes.
