Tarboro man held without bond in rape of 13-year-old runaway
Posted September 18
Tarboro, N.C. — An Edgecombe County man is facing a charge of statutory rape after being found in a home with a teenage runaway Monday morning.
Tarboro police responded to a home on Kathryn Lane early Monday morning in response to a reported runaway.
When they arrived, officers found a 13-year-old sleeping inside the house with German Cruz Capetillo, 30, and determined that the pair had engaged in sexual activity.
Capetillo was being held at the Edgecombe County Detention Center without bond because he is considered a flight risk.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security was contacted and the process for an Immigrations and Customs Enforcement detainer against Capetillo was started, police said.
