New Castle County Police have charged a Newark man with allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl. Police say 25-year-old Mitchell Morrow raped the girl at one of his neighbor's homes in January. He was arrested Saturday at his home.

Police didn't learn of the alleged rape until about a week later. The girl and her friend told police in late January about the alleged rape and officers began investigating.

He is charged with one count of second-degree rape and one count of unlawful sexual contact and is being held at the Howard Young Correctional Institution.
