— Cumberland County detectives charged a Fayetteville man with raping two children for 2½ years.

The victims told investigators that the attacks began in November 2005, when they were 1 and 5 years of age.

Karesh Lamumba Forrest, 28, of 2806 Needle Drive, is in jail on domestic violence charges filed Sept. 14. On Monday, detectives charged him with first-degree statutory rape, taking indecent liberties with a child, crimes against nature and sex acts by a substitute parent.

His bail was set at $500,300.

    This man deserves life in prison without parole for the crime he did to these children. I hopes he get it too. I hope the children will be alright in time.

    Substitute parent? Are you kidding me? Is that suppose to mean something in PCese? Seems these babies were thrown under the bus by all. It's tragic that not one single person that they came into contact with, from their own mother down through the "system", would help to save them.

    The only positive side that I can see to this story, is the knowledge of the treatment this type of vermin will receive in prison.

    Can you believe my comment didn't make the cut! They can talk about a man raping BABIES on tv, post it on the net, put it in the paper....but me I have no right to say I would have killed this man if those were my kids.

    BTW - I also said I would have NEVER let anyone who looked like that within 2 miles of my kids.

    Come on sooper-proofer- you ain't takin up for the baby-raper, are YOU?

    Think we need to go back to the time when these crimes would have been capital and he could be executed - if this really happened then this man needs to never see the light of day again. Praying for the children.
