— A registered sex offender has been charged in connection with an alleged rape of a 16-year-old girl, authorities said Tuesday.

Orlando Florentino Reynolds, 22, of 2044 Ivey Commons Road in Fayetteville, is charged with second-degree forcible rape. He was being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center under a $25,000 secured bond.

Authorities said the girl was semi-conscious, claiming she took medication and consumed alcohol before the alleged assault. The incident is alleged to have occurred between last September and October, authorities said.

Reynolds was registered last year in North Carolina as a sex offender after he was convicted in Fairfax County of taking indecent liberties with a minor.
