LAKE GEORGE - Police say 33-year-old Matthew Berry, from White Plains, raped a 16-year-old girl at a Lake George hotel.

NewsChannel 13’s media partners at the Post Star uncovered the two met on a website the girl described as a place for rich older guys to find young girls.

The teen is quoted in court papers saying she set up a profile that showed she was 18 years old and agreed to meet Berry.

She told police the man paid her $200 after the incident.

Berry was with his wife when police arrested him.
