Alabaster police arrested Alabaster resident Noe Ricardo Flores at 3 p.m. at THS and charged him with raping an underage girl.

Because the case involves an underage victim, Alabaster Police Chief Curtis Rigney said he could not release many details in the case.

Rigney said Flores’ charge stemmed from a previous alleged forcible rape at a residence in the city.

According to Alabama law, first-degree rape is a Class A felony and could carry a sentence of between 10-99 years in prison.
