Twenty-eight-year-old Derek Cochran is being held at the Thomas County Jail.

Sheriff deputies say a 15-year-old girl was at her friend's house on Church Street for a sleepover. The teen says in the middle of the night her friend's brother raped her. Deputies say the girl waited until morning when she went home and told her mother.

Thomas County Investigator Tim Watkins said, "We want to tell everyone to report it, anything inappropriate happens to them, report it to law enforcement any time there is a problem."

Investigators say Cochran is charged with rape and aggravated assault.
