Wayne County detectives say they have caught a statutory rape suspect who met his victim online.
The suspect is 29-year-old James Broadway Jr., of Goldsboro. He has been locked up under a $100,000 bond.
The Wayne County Sheriff's Department put a warrant out for Broadway's arrest Wednesday. They say Broadway ran from them, but they took him in custody Friday.
According to detectives, Broadway was having an online relationship with a 15-year-old Wayne County teenager through MySpace, and he then went to meet her and had sex with her. Her parents filed a report a couple of weeks ago of the statutory rape.
Detectives say Broadway has no prior history of sexual assault, but he has been arrested in the past of other misdemeanors.
