A stu­dent’s brav­ery and the ac­tions of a Kennewick school coun­selor helped catch a sus­pected rapist.

A stu­dent went to a coun­selor Wed­nes­day to re­port be­ing mo­lested by an adult, Kennewick po­lice said. The coun­selor im­me­di­ately turned to a school re­source of­fi­cer, who brought in the Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tions Divi­sion.

De­tec­tives booked Robert V. Ber­ry­hill, 41, into the Ben­ton County jail on sus­pi­cion of third-de­gree rape and third-de­gree child mo­lesta­tion.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors said they would not have caught Ber­ry­hill with­out the vic­tim’s brav­ery.
