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."

    Gov. Martin O'Malley has said he may issue an executive order creating a pilot program for reforms to criminal bail procedures. It would be the next chapter in Maryland's efforts to comply with a Court of Appeals ruling that defendants have a right to legal counsel at every bail hearing. Legislators failed to agree on a solution this past session.
