State and local sheriff's investigators reported finding a large amount of "disturbing evidence" at the scene of the suspected rape of a 14-year-old Richland County girl.

A Greenwich teen and his 17-year-old girlfriend face multiple charges in connection with the investigation.

Lawrence E. Hickman, 19, of 3764 E. U.S. 224, Lot 26, is charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor and tampering with evidence. If he posts a $30,000 bond, he is prohibited from having any association with any non-family members under the age of 18.

The Huron County Sheriff's Office arrested Hickman at his place of employment, a Milan factory, Saturday morning.
