BESSEMER, Ala. (AP) - An Alabama teenager accused of committing several crimes ranging from rape to animal cruelty has been arrested and charged.

AL.com reports that according to court records, 19-year-old Treveon Weaver was arrested Aug. 9 on dozens of charges, including second-degree assault, first-degree rape and cruelty to animals. Weaver’s lawyer, Fred Pickard, says his client maintains his innocence.

Charging documents say Weaver entered a couple’s home on July 22 armed with a gun. Documents say that while Weaver stole two cell phones, he knocked out two teeth of the family’s dog and assaulted the man and woman. They say he also raped and sodomized the woman.
