A Spring Valley teen was arrested Tuesday and is facing robbery and rape charges. Police say the 15-year-old boy robbed and slashed a local woman Monday night, as well as robbed and raped a second woman last year.

The boy was arraigned and sent to a juvenile facility in Valhalla on $125,000 bail.

The teen was charged with felony robbery, rape and attempted rape and assault. He is being charged as an adult. Police would not release his name because of his age.

Authorities say the victim from the incident Monday night came in to the village's police station with her throat slit. She was treated at Good Samaritan Hospital.
