LEWES, Del. - Delaware State Police say they have arrested a Lewes man in connection with raping a 14-year-old girl.
Detectives say they began a rape investigation after a 14-year-old girl reported to the Division of Family Services on Thursday that she had been involved in a sexual relationship with 55-year-old Frederick Massey of Lewes, DE. According to reports, the two had met in October 2012 while the victim was working at a local kennel in Milton, and the two continued to communicate through text messages. In March 2013, Massey engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior with the 14-year-old in a wooded area near Redden Forest.
Massey was committed to SCI on Friday on $129,000 cash bond.
