GEORGETOWN, Del. — Georgetown police say a man from Maine has been charged with raping a 14-year-old runaway he met online.

James I. Allen, 34, of Dresden was arrested Sunday and charged with three counts of second-degree rape, two counts of fourth-degree rape and sexual solicitation of a child. He is being held on $230,000 cash bail.

Police spokesman Lt. Lawrence Grose told The News Journal of Wilmington that officers went to the Comfort Inn after learning that the missing girl might be there. He said officers found Allen and the girl in a room.

Grose says the girl told detectives she met Allen through Facebook; they continued communicating online and arranged to meet at the motel.

Grose said she and Allen engaged in sex acts in the room.
