A woman called Tracy police at 9:51 p.m. Tuesday and said that her 17-year-old daughter was raped near Lake Del Valle in Alameda County sometime Monday night. Tracy police told her to contact Alameda County authorities.

Sgt. Tyrone Davis of the East Bay Regional Parks District Police Department said that his agency learned that two teenage girls might have been raped early Monday morning. He said they appear to have been on a group camping trip and might have known the man involved.

Police have not made any arrests, and Davis said detectives must interview the girls again and gather more information on their alleged assailant.
