CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Police say a 22-year-old man who was on probation is accused in the kidnapping and rape of a 14-year-old girl in Charlotte.

Detectives with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department have charged Tyquan Osborne for his alleged involvement in a recent sexual assault.

On Sept. 15, police say a 14-year-old girl reported to police that a suspect approached her while she was walking her dog on West Sugar Creek Road. 

Following a casual conversation, police say the suspect physically forced the 14-year-old into a car and took her to another location where he sexually assaulted her. 

During the investigation, police say the juvenile was treated at a local hospital, and evidence was collected.

On Sept. 23, officers located and arrested Osborne without incident.  At the time of his arrest, police say he was found to be in possession of a stolen gun. 

Osborne was charged with three counts of statutory rape, three counts of indecent liberties with a child, first-degree kidnapping, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a stolen firearm and carrying a concealed weapon.

The investigation into this case is active and ongoing.  As additional information develops, police say it will be released by the CMPD’s Public Affairs Office.
