WOODBRIDGE, Va. — Police in northern Virginia say a man faces rape and other charges for a sexual relationship with a 12-year-old girl.

Prince William County police say officers responded Monday to a Woodbridge home, where they found a missing girl from King George County.

An incident report says that as officers tried to make contact at the front door, 20-year-old Tyquan Stoney tried to flee out the back door. Officers detained Stoney and made contact with the girl.

Detectives determined they met on Instagram and that Stoney went to the girl’s home and brought her to the Woodbridge residence. Detectives say Stoney had an inappropriate relationship with the child.

Police charged Stoney with two counts of rape and other offenses.

It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
