A local man is in custody and accused of raping a child.

Victor Veliz, 39, of 131 Hobson St., Bellevue, was arrested this morning by Detective Eric Burt and charged with two counts of rape, which are first-degree felonies.

Veliz is accused of having sex with a child less than 13 years of age and also forcible rape of that child, police reported.

Veliz was arraigned today at Bellevue Municipal Court and received $50,000 bail on each count, “cash only, no 10 percent,” interim police chief Matt Johnson said.

Johnson said he could not release any more details due to the ongoing investigation involving another victim.
