Suspicious family called police

Amagansett Man Charged With Rape Of Teen




An Amagansett man was arrested and charged with rape on Thursday evening after he had sex with a teenager on multiple occasions, East Hampton Town police said.

Lendher Calvin-Ortiz, 31, was allegedly having sex with the teen for several months when family members became suspicious and called police. That call triggered an investigation by the town detective squad, which led to Calvin-Ortiz’s arrest.

No information about the teen was released except that the victim is under the age of 17.

Calvin-Ortiz was charged with two counts of rape in the third degree, both felonies, and one misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child.

He was held overnight, and was arraigned via teleconference the morning of June 5. East Hampton Town Justice Steven Tekulsky set bail at $1500, and he was released.
