Man accused of kidnapping, raping Colorado runaway

Albuquerque Police say a man kidnapped and raped a Colorado runaway.

Officers were called to a northwest Albuquerque home Friday afternoon. 

There they found a 13-year-old girl who was listed as a runaway out of Colorado.

The girl told police that 37-year-old Orin Kristich picked her up in Pueblo, Colorado Monday. 

The girl says she told Kristich she wanted to see her family in Michigan, but that Kristich took her to his home in Albuquerque and would not let her leave.

She says Kristich raped her, choked her and threatened her with a knife over several days.

Kristich was arrested and is in jail waiting to see a judge.
