MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A 17-year-old girl said a family member made inappropriate comments toward her and tried to rape her.

According to a police report, the victim went to Jermaine Taylor's home to stay the night on May 29. That's when he asked her to come into his bed and touched her inappropriately.

The teen told officers that Taylor told her he was going to "teach her how to become a woman before she turns 18." He put his legs across her legs and wouldn't let her leave.

When she was able to get free, the blankets fell off of Taylor and she noticed he was naked. She asked him to take her home and then reported the incident.

Taylor was arrested and charged with attempted statutory rape by an authority figure.
