ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — A sex offender has been accused of kidnapping and raping a 14-year-old girl from her home, according to the Rochester Police Department.

Early Friday morning, officers responded to a home in the northeast area of Rochester for the report of a burglary. They said the victim was home alone when the suspect entered the house with a tire iron, choked her, and then forcibly performed sexual acts upon her. The suspect then took her to another location and raped her there.

During the incident, officers said the suspect took pictures of her for sexual gratification and pointed a gun at her, threatening to kill her.

Investigators identified the suspect as 47-year-old Kelvin Hunt, who was known to the family of the victim. Hunt is a level 2 violent sex offender who was convicted in 1995 of first-degree sex abuse by forcible compulsion. He was on parole for a weapon charge conviction in 2004.

A manhunt was launched to find Hunt, who was allegedly involved in two separate police chases over the last several days. The US Marshalls Task Force said they found Hunt inside a hotel in Gates and arrested him after a chase. A search of his hotel room uncovered a loaded handgun and around 80 grams of heroin.

Hunt, a level 2 violent sex offender, was charged with predatory sexual assault, first-degree sexually motivated burglary, criminal possession of a weapon in the second and third degree, and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Hunt’s arraignment was rescheduled for Tuesday morning at 9:30 a.m. after police said he refused to leave his jail cell.
