Delaware State Police have arrested a Lewes man in connection with allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl.
Police began investigating Friday after the teen disclosed to the Division of Family Services on Thursday that she had been involved in a sexual relationship with 55-year-old Frederick Massey Jr.
The investigation revealed, the two had met in October 2012 while the victim was working at a local kennel in Milton. As the months passed, the two communicated through text messages and then in February 2013, Massey kissed her on the lips. The relationship continued and in March of 2013, Massey engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior with the girl while they were parked in a wooded area near Redden Forest.
Massey is charged with two counts of 2nd degree rape and three counts of unlawful sexual contact. He’s being held at SCI in lieu of $129,000 bail.
