---- — LONDONDERRY — A 17-year-old Londonderry resident faces six counts of statutory rape involving a 14-year-old girl, police said.
Corey Masson of 59 Auburn Road was arrested Wednesday after turning himself in to police, according to Lt. Timothy Jones.
Police issued a warrant for Masson after being contacted by the girl’s mother, Jones said. He said the alleged assaults were not random, but could not confirm if the teens were involved in a romantic relationship.
Jones said he could not comment further on the arrest because the case involved a juvenile.
Each count of sexual assault-statutory rape is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail, Jones said.
Masson was released on $1,000 cash bail and is scheduled to appear in court July 15.
