A sixth suspect has been charged in connection with the gang rape of a 16-year-old Richmond High School girl who was attacked after she left a homecoming dance, a prosecutor said today.

Elvis Torrentes, 21, was charged with sexual penetration of an intoxicated person, rape by foreign object in concert and rape in concert, said Dara Cashman, a Contra Costa County deputy district attorney.

Torrentes and five other defendants will appear in a Richmond courtroom Tuesday. A seventh suspect has been released pending DNA evidence testing.

Three other defendants are juveniles who have been charged as adults: Marcelles James Peter, 17, Ari Abdallah Morales, 16, and Cody Ray Smith, 15. The other two charged are Manuel Ortega, 19, and Jose Carlos Montano, 18.

Authorities say the defendants raped the girl over two hours Oct. 24, while up to 20 others watched.
