(BEDFORD) - A Bedford man was arrested after police say he raped a 17-year-old girl.

According to Indiana State Police, on October 13 the girl woke to find 24-year-old Cory Mason of Bedford in her bed.

According to a Lawrence County Superior Court II probable cause affidavit, the girl told police Mason touched her inappropriately without her consent. The teen told police she told Mason no and to stop and then kicked him off the mattress.

Later that same morning she says Mason held her down and forced her to have sex. She was finally able to break away from Mason.

During an interview with police the teen told them Mason has sexually assaulted her when she was 12 or 13 and in the sixth grade. Mason was 18 at the time of that incident.

When police spoke to Mason he confirmed he had been in the home with the girl and did admit to wanting to have sex with her, but she refused. He denied raping the girl in the October incident. But did admit to having sex with her when she was younger.

Mason was arrested Sunday on charges of child molesting and rape and is being held at the Lawrence County Jail on a $50,000 surety or $5,005 cash bond.
