American Islamic Relations:

SEATTLE - A 22-year-old University of Washington senior is accused of raping a 12-year-old girl he met in Seattle's University District.

Court documents say Omar Abdelbadie, who is on the University's dean's list, saw the girl walking on "The Ave" Sunday and talked to her because she was dressed provocatively.

According to CBS affiliate KIRO-TV, the victim told investigators that she disclosed her age to Abdelbadie.

They allegedly smoked marijuana and had sex at his apartment.

The station reports that according to Washington State law, sexual intercourse between a 22-year-old and a 12-year-old is considered second-degree child rape.

The girl was a runaway who had been reported missing by her guardian. Someone who saw them together called police Monday, and Abdelbadie was arrested.

Abdelbadie is a member of CAIR and Vice President the University of Washington's Interfaith Council.
