Posted January 1, 2014
Raeford, N.C. — A 23-year-old Raeford man is facing charges in connection with a November sexual assault on a juvenile, Hoke County investigators said Wednesday.
Hoke County deputies on Tuesday arrested Rakeem Deonte Dillard, of 250 Quail Drive, and charged him with first-degree statutory sexual offense.
Investigators said Dillard assaulted the victim while she slept during the early-morning hours on Nov. 19, 2013.
The victim's mother confronted Dillard following the assault, but he fled before Hoke County deputies were called, officials said in a news release.
Dillard was arrested Tuesday after investigators received a call from the victim's mother. He was released after posting a $50,000 secured bond.
No other information about the investigation was released.
