COLUMBUS (WCMH) — A Columbus man accused of raping a young girl had his bond set at $20,000 this morning.

Columbus police say 20-year-old Amoneaux Dalton raped a girl under the age of 15 on May 26 in the hilltop.

Police took to Facebook last week to ask for information leading to Dalton’s arrest. He was arrested Monday.

In addition to a $20,000 bond, Dalton was ordered to stay away from the victim and all minors.

Investigators say evidence connects Dalton to the rape, but could not go into further detail, citing the young age of the victim.
