Harrington police have arrested a Harbeson man in connection with an alleged rape.

Department spokesman Capt. Earl K. Brode identified the suspect as Damon S. Dudley, 26.

Early in October, the department received a complaint about a September incident that took place in the 200 block of Delaware Avenue. Police determined Dudley allegedly had sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old girl while he was staying with a family member of the victim.

Dudley surrendered at the police headquarters Nov. 2 and was charged with a single count of fourth-degree rape involving a victim less than 16 years of age.

He later was released on a $5,000 unsecured bond pending a preliminary hearing in the Kent County Court of Common Pleas.
