1 suspect arrested, 2nd sought in Harrisburg rape case

Posted: Updated:

HARRISBURG, S.D. (AP) - Authorities have made one arrest and are seeking a second suspect and possibly a third in the alleged rape of a 12-year-old girl in southeastern South Dakota's Lincoln County.

Elizeo Kalimba, 20, of Sioux Falls, made his first court appearance Tuesday on rape and child pornography charges. His bond was set at $25,000 cash. He will enter a plea later.

The sheriff's office is seeking the public's help in finding Obadiah Loyira, 19, who is wanted on the same charges. He is believed to be in the Sioux Falls area. He is not considered a threat to the public.

The rape is alleged to have happened Jan. 15 at Loyira's home in Harrisburg. Authorities allege Loyira took pictures on his cellphone. They are investigating whether a third person was involved.
