GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) - Georgetown Police say a man from Maine has been charged with raping a 14-year-old runaway he met online.

Thirty-four-year-old James I. Allen of Dresden, Maine, 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 A. Grose tells The News Journal of Wilmington (https://delonline.us/1F6XdIw ) say law enforcers went to the Comfort Inn after learning that the missing girl might be there. He says 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 says she and Allen engaged in sex acts in the room.
