A 19-year-old has been charged with rap­ing a girl he met on Face­book.

Ac­cord­ing to Lt. Keith Crum with the New­ton County Sher­iff’s Of­fice, Jaquon Mar­que­vi­ous Giles of Litho­nia met a 17-year-old fe­male on the so­cial net­work­ing site. Af­ter talk­ing they de­cided to meet in per­son.

Af­ter the ini­tial meet­ing the teen in­vited him to her home in Cov­ing­ton. As the two be­came in­ti­mate, the girl told Giles to stop, but he didn’t, and forced him­self on her, Crum said.

On a later date authorities were con­tacted and met the girl and a par­ent at the hos­pi­tal. Giles was sub­se­quently ar­rested. He re­mains in the New­ton County De­ten­tion Cen­ter with no bond avail­able.
