A 17-year old teen from Davis was arrested last Tuesday on an alleged rape case involving a 14-year old victim.

According to the Garvin County Sheriff’s Office, the alleged act(s) occurred in the community of Hennepin on or about March 27.

“The 17-year old was arrested and is currently being held in a juvenile facility on a $100,000 bond,” said Garvin County Sheriff Larry Rhodes.

Rhodes said physical evidence recovered by investigators has been sent to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation forensics lab for examination.

The 17-year old suspect is being handled as a youthful offender and may be certified as an adult, Rhodes added.
