CT man facing charges after allegedly raping underage teen in Guilderland hotel

GUILDERLAND, N.Y. (NEWS10) - The Guilderland Police Department arrested a Connecticut man on rape and other charges at the Days Inn on Western Avenue Thursday morning.

Christopher Green, 31, was charged with second-degree rape, second-degree criminal sex act (actor over 17, victim under 15), and endangering the welfare of a child.

Green is a construction worker from Hartford, Conn., but he has been on a job in the Capital Region for about one month.

It's believed that sometime overnight Wednesday and into Thursday morning, Green had a local girl, under the age of 15, meet him at the Days Inn on Western Avenue. He was arrested around 4 a.m.

It is unclear how the two met or how long they knew each other.

Because he is from out of state, a Guilderland town judge considered Green to be a flight risk. He was ordered to be held in Albany County Jail without bail and a full order of protection was also put into effect.

Workers at the Days Inn said they were asked to hand over surveillance footage to police. The investigation is in the early stages.

Green is expected back in court at 4 p.m. Monday.
