Police have charged a Raleigh man with statutory rape/sex offense with a 13-year-old girl in 2013 and 2014.
Walter Antonio Boone, 35, who lives on Leesville Road, was arrested Monday night at an apartment building on Kidd Road, according to arrest records.
An arrest warrant charged Boone with three counts of a charge that was known when the incidents happened as statutory rape/sex offense by someone more than six years older than the victim. The legislature recodified the charge in 2015 as statutory rape of a person who is 15 or younger.
Police also accused Boone of taking indecent liberties with a child.
