Pasco sheriff's deputies on Thursday arrested a 33-year-old New Port Richey man on a warrant charging him with rape.
Tyrone Arnold Hunter was picked up by sheriff's deputies at his home on Mesa Drive. He was being held in the county jail Friday in lieu of $100,000 bail.
According to the warrant, Hunter performed sexual acts on a girl less than 12 years old between 1996 and 2001. Between 2001 and 2004, he performed sexual acts on a girl between 12 and 16 years old, the warrant said.
Hunter faces charges of capital sexual battery and lewd or lascivious battery. The warrant was unclear on whether the victim was the same girl in both charges.
