A Harrington man, identified as Christopher Kellenbenz Jr., 18, of the 100 block of Mechanic Street, has been arrested on sexual assault charges.
Police were notified of the assault Aug. 8 after the 14-year-old victim was examined at Bayhealth-Kent General Hospital, said department spokesman Lt. Earl K. Brode. The girl told police Kellenbenz, who is a relative, had assaulted her at their home.
Kellenbenz was taken into custody at the home and charged with fourth-degree rape where the victim is less than 16 years of age, and incest.
Kellenbenz later was released on a $6,000 unsecured bond.
