DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama man is accused of raping an underage girl.

Dothan Police Lt. Lynn Watkins tells The Dothan Eagle that 40-year-old Emiliano Rodriguez was arrested Monday night, after police received a complaint from the victim's mother. Watkins says information is limited because the victim is a juvenile. The case is still under investigation.

Rodriguez is charged with 10 counts of second-degree rape, 20 counts of second-degree assault and five counts of second-degree sodomy.

It's unclear whether he has a lawyer.
