Man charged with raping 5 teenage girls

DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) - A man has been charged with seven counts of statutory rape and three counts of aggravated statutory rape in Lake County.

Police say 24-year-old Larry Higgins, also known as Larry Bonds, had sex with at least five teenage girls on several occasions in Tiptonville and Ridgely.

Tiptonville Police began investigating Higgins in December after the father of one girl called to complain.

Officers say Higgins had sexual encounters with two 14-year-old girls, two 15-year-olds and one 17-year-old girl.

Police Chief Norman Rhodes says he suspects more girls were involved. A Lake County grand jury is scheduled to meet March 10.
