A 19-year-old Felton woman was arrested Sept. 15 on rape charges involving an 11-year-old boy.

Delaware State Police investigated the rape complaint Sept. 14, alleging Cassandra Epperson, of the unit block Skinner Lane, Felton, was at another residence Aug. 20 to babysit and followed the victim into a bathroom at the rear of the residence and conducted inappropriate actions, said police spokesman Cpl. Bruce W. Harris.

The victim later disclosed this information to his mother, who then contacted Delaware State Police, Harris said. Police charged Epperson with first-degree rape, unlawful sexual contact and endangering the welfare of a child.

She was remanded to the Dolores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institute on $2,000 secured bond.
