A South Carolina man was arrested Tuesday following a report law enforcement received last month involving sexual offenses with an underage girl.

After an investigation conducted by detectives with the Stanly County Sheriff’s Office, Hasonn Rushing, 20, of Fort Mill was charged with two counts of statutory rape of a child less than or equal to 15 years of age, according to Lt. Joseph Lawing with the Sheriff Office’s Criminal Investigations Division.

He had been traveling to see a girl in Stanly for many months before he was arrested, Lawing said.

Rushing was arrested in York, South Carolina and transported to Stanly County Jail. He’s on a secured bond of $200,000 and his next court appearance is Aug. 9.
