A Pamlico County man is facing 10 felony charges, including kidnapping and rape that involved a teenage victim.

Deputies arrested Anthony Peele of Grantsboro on Wednesday. The victim was a 13-year-old girl from Pamlico County.

The 36-year-old man is in jail on a $2.6 million bond and could face additional charges from two other counties.

Right now Peele is charged with indecent liberties with a child, first degree kidnapping, three counts of statutory offense with defendant being greater than 6 years older than victim, three counts of second degree sexual offense, statutory rape with the defendant being greater than 6 years older than the victim and second degree rape.

The Department of Correction web site says Peele got out of prison last October after serving 7-years and two-months for an attempted second degree rape and 2nd degree kidnapping conviction from Pamlico County.

The web site also says Peele was convicted in 1990 for taking indecent liberties with a child from Beaufort County.
