A man from Buffalo Grove is charged with raping a 12-year-old girl he met on a dating web site.
According to Cook County prosecutors, 19-year-old Tal Vardy met the girl in person February 19.
They drove to a parking lot off of Cicero Avenue in Oak Forest, where they had sex twice.
When the girl was dropped off at her home, she told her mother she’d been sexually assaulted.
Prosecutors say, DNA testing identified Vardy as the attacker.
Through his attorney, Vardy says he thought the girl was 18.
