GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) - A Gadsden man accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl has been taken into custody.

Local news outlets report that Etowah County sheriff’s deputies say 18-year-old Kevin Blain Cardwell has been charged with second-degree rape and second-degree sodomy of a 13-year-old girl.

Sheriff Todd Entrekin says the arrest came in connection with an incident investigators believe occurred last Friday.

The sheriff’s office says Cardwell was booked into the Etowah County Detention Center and released on bond.

It’s not immediately clear if he has an attorney.
