Arrest Made In Sexual Assault Of Handicapped Woman

A man wanted for questioning in connection with the alleged rape of a mentally handicapped woman last September in Benson has been apprehended. The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office located Derek Tremayne McEachin at an address on Josephine Road in the Cleveland community late-Wednesday. Officers reportedly found a small amount of marijuana in his possession. McEachin was later charged by Benson Police with first-degree rape. The 22-year-old man is accused of raping a young handicapped woman in a Benson Housing Authority apartment during the Mule Day weekend, but the assault had nothing to do with the festival. McEachin was jailed under a $201,000 bond.
