PAWTUCKET – The brother of a man charged in a local murder last summer was sent to the ACI to be held without bail on Tuesday after he allegedly raped a 14-year-old girl Monday night.
Major Arthur Martins, Pawtucket Police spokesman, said Napoleon Johnson, 19, was ordered held without bail on the charge of 1st degree sexual assault after turning himself in at police headquarters early Tuesday.
The victim, who was an acquaintance of Napoleon Johnson, was reported to have been taken to his 69 John St. residence and raped in his bedroom.
“She left the house and went to a friend’s home who lives nearby and we were notified,” Martins said.
The victim was taken to Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence where an examination was conducted.
Johnson’s older brother, Darrell “Damage” Johnson, 20 at the time, was charged in the July 6, 2012 murder of Joshua Burgo, 20, behind the Nathaniel Greene Element-ary School. Burgo, a young father who had played football for Shea High School, was found by firefighters with a gunshot wound to the chest when they responded to a call for help from a group of people gathered near the victim on the side of Grotto Avenue. Burgo later died at Rhode Island Hospital.
Darrell Johnston was eventually charged as the shooter and has remained in custody at the ACI awaiting his trial, according to Martins.
