Cookeville Man Charged With Child Rape

A Cookeville man, who was found alone in a car with a 14-year-old boy late Sunday night, has now been charged with child rape. Police say the investigation began after an officer noticed the car at the Jere Whitson ball park. The 14-year-old told police of the alleged sexual contact and says the suspect also had sexual contact with the boy's eleven-year-old brother. Police say 27-year-old Stuart Ray Dilldine of Bradley Drive is charged in the case. According to reports, Dilldine is an acquaintance of the family and is accused of allegedly engaging in sex with the victims on numerous occasions over the past couple of years, but is -- for the moment -- charged with only two counts of rape of a child.
