A man accused of raping two Albuquerque teenage girls turned himself in Wednesday afternoon.

Robert Carr is facing several counts of criminal sexual penetration.

Both girls were patients at Desert Hills Treatment Center in Albuquerque. It's a facility that helps teens with behavioral problems.

Deputies say the girls ran away last week during a volunteer trip to Joy Junction.

Investigators say they met up with Carr and a woman a few days later near Cottonwood Mall.

Deputies say Carr had sex with the girls in a motel room after buying them food and alcohol.

Deputies also arrested the woman, identified as Teddy Burnell.

They say she knew Carr was having sex with the girls but did nothing to stop it.

She's also accused of giving them alcohol.

Deputies say they found the girls with Burnell after one of them messaged a family member on Facebook asking for help.

But by that time they say Carr was already gone.

KOB Eyewitness News 4 has learned Carr has a long criminal history.

He was already awaiting trial on robbery, kidnapping and assault charges from another arrest two years ago.
