A Pennsylvania dentist raped a 15-year-old girl several times and forced the victim to take a “morning after pill" after the alleged assaults, according to police.
Michael Boyd Damgaard, 33, admitted to going on a “hiking date” two times with the girl, but denied having sex with her or filming the encounters, according to authorities.
Damgaard was known as “Dominik” to the girl, who identified him from a photo lineup on June 20, 2020, police said.
Investigators said the victim met him Damgaard on a dating site and they later switched to Snapchat to talk. She told Damgaard she was 15 years old, and he told her he liked younger girls, according to authorities.
They first met in person on May 12, 2020 in the woods, in which they had sex and he gave her a morning after pill, police said.
They met again on May 25 in a motel and had sex again and she was forced to smoke a “blunt,” police said.
Penn Live reported Damgaard threatened to kill the teen if she did not meet him on June 19 in the woods again.
She did and he forced her to perform sex on him, they had intercourse and he put a morning after pill in her mouth and held her nose shut until she swallowed it, according to authorities.
On this same day, the victim's mother reported her missing, but then saw her coming out of the woods with a man following, police said.
The mother tried to stop Damgaard from leaving, as she believed he committed a criminal act with her daughter, but he punched her in the chest and ribs and knocked her to the ground, authorities said.
The mom got back up and ran after him toward a parked Audi, which Damgaard owned, but he dragged her by the arm. She eventually got free and fell to the ground, injuring her head and hip, police said.
Authorities said that DNA from swabs of the girl matched a sample collected from the dentist.
Damgaard was charged with numerous counts, including rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse under threat of force and statutory sexual assault, police said.
He was released on $175,000 bail and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on May 24.
