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.
