Sheriff Kevin Henderson says a Phelps man was taken into custody and charged with first-degree rape after an investigation into a 2017 incident.

The investigation began in December, when the victim reported to authorities that she was raped in August 2017 by Thomas in the area of 5&20 and Freshour Rd. in Hopewell.

Mitchell was taken into custody without incident and will answer the charge at a later date.
