PASCO, Wash. — A Pasco man was arrested on Wednesday after police say he allegedly raped a young girl.

On Saturday, Nov. 9, police were informed that 20-year-old Juan Jose Barragan made unwanted sexual contact with the girl, said Sgt. Scott Warren. The girl was between the ages of 12 and 14.

Police said the girl was a runaway, and that she and her mother reported the incident together.

A few days later, police responded to Barragan’s home and arrested him on suspicion of second-degree rape of a child.
