Delaware State Police have arrested a 19-year-old Felton woman accused of raping the 11-year-old boy she was babysitting.

Cassandra Epperson, 19, is charged with first-degree rape, unlawful sexual contact and endangering the welfare of a child.

Police said that on Tuesday, Sept. 14, troopers investigated a reported rape at a home on Skinner Lane in Felton.

According to police, they learned that on Aug. 20, Epperson, who lives on Skinner Lane, was at a nearby home to babysit.

Troopers say Epperson was babysitting five children, including the victim, at the time of the incident.

Police say Epperson allegedly followed the victim into a bathroom at the rear of the home and sexually assaulted the 11-year-old boy.

Investigators say the victim later disclosed this information to his mother, who then contacted Delaware State Police.

Epperson was arrested on Wednesday and was sent to prison on $2,000 secured bond.
