Man Allegedly Hid In Teen's Closet, Raped Her At Night

 

A North Carolina man has been arrested after police say he spent five days hiding in a 14-year-old girl's closet and sexually assaulting her at night.

Jarred Ashley Workman, 27, of Iredell County, was charged with 11 counts of statutory rape and five counts of statutory sex offense, according to WCNC.

Authorities said Workman chatted with the teen on social media for about a month before deciding to meet up in the woods near the girl's home.

The teen invited Workman to stay at her home, where she lived with her parents, on April 27, according to WTVR.

The suspect managed to stay there for five days, allegedly sexually assaulting the teen at night while her parents were asleep.

"Just the fact that he would be that brazen to come up here to meet a girl online and then would try to stay in her residence not knowing what her parents are or what they're about," Lt. Bill Hamby with the Iredell County Sheriff's Office told the station.

The victim's mother caught Workman hiding in the closet on May 2. Workman allegedly bolted from the residence and ran into the woods.

The mother called police, who used a K-9 unit to search for the suspect, according to WBTV.

Police said they believe Workman was able to initially evade by police by getting a ride in a vehicle. Officers said they were able to locate Workman based on his phone and wallet, which he dropped while running through the woods. Police dogs discovered the items.

Cops said the victim identified her alleged assailant by name.

Workman turned himself in on Monday. In the past, Workman has been arrested for reckless driving, possession of stolen goods, probation violations, and eluding arrest with a motor vehicle.

"The internet has just ruined that poor girl," the victim's mother told WTVR. "She was very taken advantage of. I'm uncomfortable in my own home. I'm scared. I can't sleep at night."

I don't spy.

I don't need to be sneaky about it.  If, at any time, I am denied access or passwords change, the whole social media aspect is gone.

How does someone hide in the house for 4 days, and no one notices? Also, why did this 14 year old girl's internet activities go unchecked long enough for this to happen? Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting.

I think the title to this post is a bit misleading. While dude was quite disgusting, there is a HUGE difference between rape and statutory rape.

 Yes, this story has holes in it. She hid him. She asked him to stay. She participated. I think she made it all up and is trying to fool her parents. Welll, she DID!

If he raped her, she would have told her parents and they would have had him arrested immediately. She wasn't raped. It doesn't matter if she is YOUNG, she actually hid the guy and they had sex.

Doesn't anyone recognize the fact that this is phony?She was afraid to admit the truth to her parents. Mom blames the Internet and the man.

 And think about the fact that you can't  say that the girl is always totally innocent. And it is totally biased to say that the guy is always wrong in any situation !  Get real here!
