Over the course of one month, police say a 19-year-old New York man raped and assaulted a child under 15 years old.
Hezekiah Burch was arrested on March 29 after a sex abuse investigation revealed he had allegedly been having sex with a child, according to the Batavia Police Department.
From the investigation, police say they charged Burch with two counts of first-degree rape with forcible compulsion, first-degree sex abuse with forcible compulsion and attempted first-degree sex abuse with forcible compulsion.
Since the victim is under 15 years old, authorities have not released their name at this time.
Police have not said how the victim and Burch knew each other. They also did not reveal how their investigation started.
Burch was arraigned in Batavia City Court on Friday and police say he has been remanded to the Genesee County Jail.
First-degree rape in New York is punishable by up to 25 years in prison.
