SALISBURY — A Salisbury man was arrested Wednesday after police said he raped a 14-year-old girl.
Shelton Deese, 44, was under a $100,000 bond with three additional charges of felony indecent liberties with children.
According to Salisbury Police, Deese is a “family acquaintance” of the victim.
He is believed to have inappropriately touched the girl on three different occasions inside his 1205 S. Main St. home, raping her in one of those incidents.
Salisbury Police said they were contacted by the girl’s mother near the beginning of December.
The report said the incidents happened within the last year.
