An 18-year-old Delaware man is behind bars, charged with burglary, assault and sexually assaulting a minor.

Daquan Stevenson of Newark is being held on $70,000 bail.

Police say on Tuesday at 10:00 p.m. Stevenson walked into the home of a 21-year-old acquaintance, began scuffling with the man, then hit him on the head with a handgun, knocking the man unconscious.

Investigators say Stevenson was searching for drugs.

Police arrested Stevenson Wednesday and charged him with the burglary and assault.

Stevenson was also charged with 3 counts of rape in connection with a sexual assault that was reported in July.

Police say Stevenson had become involved in a relationship with a 14-year-old girl and had sex with the girl in his home.
