DEPUTIES: Man Admits Raping 14-Year-Old, Says He Fathered Her Child

A 22-year-old man has been arrested for raping a 14-year-old girl, who he claims is the mother of his child.

Pitt County deputies have charged Miguel Mendoza with first degree statutory rape.

Deputies say the 14-year-old was raped back in April, possibly happening on Dean Drive.

DSS alerted deputies to the possible rape. Deputies say Mendoza admitted having sex with the 14-year-old, that she was his girlfriend and he is the father of her child.

Mendoza, who is from Washington, is in the Pitt County jail on a $300,000 bond.
