— Raleigh police have arrested a man on a charge of first-degree rape involving a child under the age of 13, according to an arrest warrant in the case.

Thaw Tun, 20, of 2433 Wycliff Road, Apt. B, was arrested Saturday and was in the Wake County Detention Center Sunday under a $500,000 secured bond.

A search warrant for Tun's 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt alleges that Thun met the 12-year-old girl online and had sex with her in his car on Saturday. A witness saw it and called police.

Tun was expected to make his first appearance in Wake County District Court on Monday.

    involving a child under the age of 13,

    I hope the courts puts this man away for a very long time. I do pray that the child receives some serious counseling to help her in life. Where was the parents of this girl? Why was this girl in the present of this grown man of 20?

    My name is the cure for animals like this.

    Thoughts to the child whose life he forever changed by his sick selfishness.
