BRENTWOOD — A high school track star played a song titled “I just had sex” as he danced around in his Jeep after allegedly raping a 17-year-old girl outside a Salem restaurant and then driving to an Epping movie theater where she was raped again, according to police.
Details of the alleged rapes that happened hours apart on Feb. 17 were outlined in affidavits filed in the case against Eliezer Tuttle, 18, of North Andover, Mass.
Tuttle, who was ordered held without bail at his arraignment Monday in Rockingham County Superior Court, faces multiple charges after turning himself in to police.
In Salem, Tuttle was charged with three counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault, second-degree assault, and two counts of simple assault. Tuttle was also charged with two counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault, two counts of simple assault, and criminal restraint for the alleged rape in Epping.
Tuttle is a senior at North Andover High School and holds school records in hurdles and high jump.
The affidavits include messages from Tuttle’s Instagram account in which he later apologized.
“I wish i could have made better choices. I’m sorry I did that,” one of the messages said.
The investigation began on Feb. 18 when the girl, who is a high school student, was brought to a hospital after she revealed to her mother that she was allegedly raped by Tuttle the day before.
According to affidavits from Epping and Salem police, the girl met Tuttle a couple of weeks earlier at the Mall at Rockingham Park in Salem and thought he was “great” and “very sociable.”
They eventually agreed to go out for breakfast at IHOP in Salem. During an interview with investigators, the alleged victim reported that she told Tuttle she wanted to get something to eat, but he said he wasn’t hungry and they weren’t going inside. Instead, she claims he began touching her and removing her clothes.
“She stated Eli was kissing her and choking her and she felt as if she could not breathe,” the affidavit said.
The girl reported that she repeatedly told him she didn’t want to have sex and that at one point he stated, “That doesn’t make sense, I want to do it.”
After the alleged rape, she claimed that they began driving and that he started playing a song titled “I just had sex” and danced around inside the vehicle.
They eventually drove to O’neil Cinemas in Epping where she alleges that she was raped again in the vehicle after they watched a movie.
The girl explained how she was “freaking out, scared, super uncomfortable and felt she had no control during the sexual assaults,” the affidavit said.
The teen told Tuttle to take her home and that when he went inside a restaurant near the theater to get something to eat she called a friend and talked about calling 911 and her mother. However, the affidavit said, the girl did not want to make Tuttle mad.
The affidavit said the teen was eventually brought home, but waited until the following day to tell her mother, at which point she was taken to a hospital where multiple injuries were discovered.
Tuttle turned himself in at the Salem Police Department on March 8.
