Man Puts Girls in Ditch, Binds Wrists and Ankles with Duct Tape

LINCOLN -- According to police, a nine year old girl and a 15-year old girl say 22 year old Damian Kelley pulled them into a ditch and bound them with duct tape. On July 21, police responded to 1217 Maple Lane in Lincoln, in response to a person tying up a young girl. Police spoke with the 15-year-old girl, who said she and the 9-year-old had been put into a ditch by Kelley, who then put duct tape around their ankles and wrists. According to the victim, Kelley also put a sock inside her mouth and showed her a picture of someone performing oral sex on a man, telling her that's what he wanted her to do to him. 

The nine-year-old victim also told police Kelley put a sock in her mouth and covered her mouth with duct tape. She said she was able to free one of her hands and help free the 15-year-old. The nine-year-old's brother saw them in the ditch and they called out for him, but they say Kelley told them to stay put.

Police say the evidence found at the scene and the injuries on the two girls is consistent with their stories. Kelley was arrested for kidnapping and second and third degree battery. He remains in the Washington County jail awaiting his court date on July 23. No bail has been set.
