DOVER, Del.- Delaware State Police have arrested a 54-year-old Milford man accused of raping a 10-year-old boy. 
 
Ronald G. Luttrell was taken into custody Monday and charged with two counts of first-degree rape, one count of attempted first-degree rape, three counts of unlawful sexual contact, one count of attempted unlawful sexual contact, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and two counts of first-degree indecent exposure.
 
Police said Luttrell's arrest stemmed from an investigation that got under way on Sept. 24, when detectives learned that he had allegedly raped the 10-year-old while staying at a home on Weeping Willow Court in Dover. The victim reported the sexual assaults to a family member after he was sure Luttrell had moved out of the house, according to investigators.
 
Troopers said the incidents occurred over a two-day period as the victim was staying with a relative at the home. Police said Luttrell, who was an acquaintance of the homeowner, was temporarily staying at the house where the sexual assaults occurred.
 
As a result of their investigation, detectives obtained a warrant for Luttrell's arrest. He was located at a home in Milford and arrested on the aforementioned charges. He is being held in the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $280,000 secured bond.
 
Anyone with additional information about this case is asked to contact the Criminal Investigations Unit at DSP Troop 3 at (302) 697-2104 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333. Information may also be provided via www.tipsubmit.com. Send an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
