— A Fort Bragg soldier was arrested Tuesday in connection with the rape of a child in Fayetteville last month, police said.

Pfc. John Jinsoo Kim, 20, was charged with first-degree rape of a child, indecent liberties with a child and sex offense in a parental role. He was being held under a $150,000 secured bond at the Cumberland County jail.

Investigators say Kim assaulted the victim, who is under the age of 13, on Sept. 14 at a home on Bedrock Drive. 

He is an active-duty behavioral health specialist at Fort Bragg.

No other information was released.
