SMYRNA, Del.- Delaware State Police detectives have arrested a Smyrna man accused of plying a 16-year-old girl with alcohol and oxycodone and then raping her. 
 
George Curtis, 21, is charged with two counts of second-degree rape, possession of a controlled substance, sexual solicitation of a child under 18, sexual harassment and providing alcohol to a minor.
 
According to police, Curtis' arrest stemmed from an investigation that got under way on Feb. 18, when the 16-year-old victim disclosed to a relative that she had been sexually assaulted by the suspect.
 
State Police Troop 3 detectives investigating the case said they learned Curtis was at the victim's house on Jan. 1, at which point they left the home together in a vehicle and drove to a nearby liquor store where he purchased alcohol. Police said Curtis then drove to his home on Fields Drive where he forced the victim to drink the liquor as well as take an oxycodone pill before he sexually assaulted her. Police said Curtis then drove the victim home where he dropped her off and allegedly continued to harass and solicit sex from her on a regular basis until she and her mother responded to Troop 3 on Monday to report the crimes.
 
On Wednesday. Feb. 27, detectives, along with the State Police Special Operations Response Team, executed a search warrant at Curtis' home.  He was taken into custody without incident and transported back to Troop 3 where he was booked on the aforementioned charges.  He was then ordered held in the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $45,000 secured bond.
