ELMWOOD MAN CHARGED WITH STATUTORY RAPE

An Elmwood man faces statutory rape charges following a sheriff’s department investigation.

On December 2, South Carthage Officer Heath Willard learned the subject, identified as Ty Antle, 22, had sexual relations with a 15 year old female he had met online, according to an offense report filed by sheriff’s department Detective Kit Jenkins.

Because the alleged incident occurred in the parking lot at the boat ramp (Rome Ferry site) in the Rome community (county’s jurisdiction), the sheriff’s department was contacted to investigate the alleged incident.

According to Jenkins’ report, the female arranged for Antle “to pick her up at her residence without her father’s permission.

They rode around and ended up at the bridge in Rome.”
