Deputies arrested a 16-year-old boy Sunday who is accused of raping a 14-year-old girl, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said.
Javonte Hummer, of Largo, faces a charge of sexual battery.
Detectives began investigating the case Sunday when the girl told a relative she had been raped Feb. 11 in unincorporated Largo. The victim told detectives she "continuously refused the suspect's advances until she was eventually physically restrained," the Sheriff's Office said.
Hummer was uncooperative during the investigation, but detectives collected enough probable cause to arrest him, according to the Sheriff's Office.
He was booked into the Pinellas County jail Sunday.
