— A Smithfield man was arrested Thursday on several charges, including rape.

Dantoine Lamont Harris, 35, of 18-A N. Sussex Drive, was charged with one count each of second-degree forcible rape and attempted second-degree forcible rape and three counts of second-degree forcible sex offense.

Harris was jailed after police responded to a disturbance at a home in Goldsboro.

Goldsboro police described him as an "associate" of the victim and said the charges reflect two occurrences.

He was being held without bond pending a first court appearance.
