A Washington man is behind bars charged with rape.
The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office arrested 50 year old Carol Julius Collins Jr. on Sunday and charged him with second degree rape.
It was back in July that the sheriff's office received a report of a sexual assault that occurred on Jack Street in Washington. The Sheriff's Office began an investigation, collected evidence, and conducted interviews. Evidence in the case was sent to the NC State Bureau of Investigations Lab in Raleigh for analysis.
Collins is being held on a $15,000.00 secured bond.
