COLUMBIA — A Columbia man, currently in jail on previous charges, faced an additional charge Tuesday of second-degree statutory rape, Columbia police spokeswoman Sgt. Jill Wieneke said.
Robert Prince III, 21, of 2 Cherokee Lane, was originally arrested July 6 and charged with first-degree child molestation and first-degree endangering the welfare of a child. He was then arrested July 14 on suspicion of possession of child pornography, according to a previous Missourian article.
The newest charge was added after a 15-year-old girl came forward to report an incident which she said happened in March, Wieneke said.
Prince's July 6 arrest came after an 11-year-old girl reported that Prince had tried to sexually assault her and show her pornographic photos, according to the article, which quoted a police news release. Two other minors, one a relative, also have come forward, Wieneke said.
Investigators believe there is a possibility that more juveniles exist in these cases, according to a police department news release.
Prince was being held in Boone County Jail on Wednesday morning on a $310,000 bond.
