Boone man charged with statutory rape

Police arrested a Boone man Tuesday on charges of statutory rape and indecent liberties with a child, according to the Boone Police Department.

Jorge Del Carmen Hernandez-Moreno, 37, was arrested at his home on Winter Drive in Boone, where the crime allegedly occurred, according to police.

Sgt. Shane Robbins said police are still investigating the timeline of events and whether there is more than one victim. The juvenile who reported the incident is not a stranger to Hernandez-Moreno, he said.

The Watauga Democrat does not identify victims or alleged victims of sexual assault.

Hernandez-Moreno was issued a $250,000 secured bond for the two felony charges and is scheduled to appear in court May 28.

The investigation is continuing, according to police.
