Noe Nunez Rojas, 27, faces sexual battery charges after deputies said he raped a teenage girl.

DOVER — A 27-year-old man was jailed early Monday after deputies say he raped a 17-year-old girl whom he knew.

Sometime between Jan. 8 and Jan. 9, deputies say the girl's friends dropped her off at the home of Noe Nunez Rojas of Dover, said Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Debbie Carter. It's not clear when or how she first met Rojas.

Carter said the girl's friends left, and she and Rojas went into Rojas's bedroom, where deputies said he undressed her, held her down and raped her.

The girl told him "no" and "stop," but he refused to comply, according to an arrest affidavit.

A warrant was issued for Rojas' arrest, and he was booked into the Hillsborough County Jail about 4:30 a.m. Monday.

He faces a charge of sexual battery and was held without bail.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
