Man charged with raping 6 girls surrenders to police

Authorities say a suburban St. Louis man who is suspected of raping six girls has surrendered.

St. Louis County police say 19-year-old Dominic Yocco, of Florissant, turned himself in late Wednesday. He is charged with several counts of rape and assault. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

A probable cause statement released by police on Monday accuses Yocco of having sex with girls ages 13, 14 and 15 while they were unconscious. Two other 15-year-olds and a 16-year-old girl also told police that Yocco had sex with them without their consent.

He also is accused of hitting the 16-year-old in the face and hitting and pinching the 14-year-old. Authorities say the crimes occurred between November 2016 and July 2018. Police say the victims knew Yocco.
