Man Charged With Raping Child Under 13

A Craven County man is in jail, accused of raping a child.

Beaufort County authorities arrested 24 year old Brandon Allen on charges of first degree statutory rape, first degree sexual offense, and indecent liberties with a child.

Deputies say last week they received a report of a sexual assault of a child that occurred on Flat Swamp Road in Blounts Creek. The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment by a parent.

The victim told authorities that additional assaults also happened at a home in New Bern.

Allen is in the Beaufort County Detention Center under a $600,000.00 secured bond set by a Craven County Magistrate. Police say additional charges are pending by the New Bern Police Department.
