DALLAS, N.C. —
A Dallas woman is in jail Thursday, accused of luring a friend to her home, where police said a man was waiting inside to rape her. Police arrested June Vazquez on Thursday morning, but the man accused of the rape is still on the run. The accuser once considered Vazquez a friend. Now she hopes Vazquez never gets out of jail. She asked Eyewitness News not to show her face. "I'm scared so much," she said. She told police last June that Vazquez invited her to a Dallas apartment to look at pictures from their native country, Venezuela. She said Vazquez told her the pictures were on a computer in the bedroom. Police say Vazquez held the woman's two young children while she went into the bedroom, where Carlos Romero locked the door and raped her. "He told me no, no talk about this to nobody, nobody," the woman said. Then she said he made a chilling threat: "I kill your babies." Friends finally convinced her two months later to talk to police, but the suspects moved and she had little information about them. "It took a while to get full names and locations," said Sgt. Lee Stoneburner with the Dallas Police Department. Police arrested Vazquez at a home in Dallas on Thursday morning. They charged her with rape, even though she never touched the victim. "The crime couldn't have, wouldn't have happened without her involvement," Stoneburner said. Police are still looking for Carlos Romero. Police said Romero has no criminal record. They believe he is still in the area.
