Arraignment Date Set For Springdale Man Accused Of Raping Underage Girl
An arraignment date of Aug. 1 has been set for a Springdale man arrested on suspicion of raping a 13-year-old girl, authorities say.
Jorge Contreras, 21, of Springdale was arrested after police interviewed the victim, and she said they had slept together, the report states.
She also stated during the interview she felt she and Contreras were boyfriend and girlfriend, according to the report.
The victim said that she and Contreras had slept together once, but later, after he was questioned by police, Contreras told officers that they had slept together twice, the report states.
A high bond was requested due to Contreras having connections in Texas and him being a “flight risk,” the report states.
Contreras was booked into the Washington County Detention Center.
