State police at Norwich arrested two men this week on rape charges, according to two separate media releases.
Lucas A. Wright, 18, of Norwich, was arrested Monday night and charged with first-degree rape, a class B felony, and endangering the welfare of a child after he allegedly forced a 15-year-old female to have sexual intercourse with him, the release said.
Chad A. Page, 38, of Chenango Forks, was arrested the following night for three counts of third-degree rape, class E felonies, and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child. Page allegedly had sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old female as well in an unrelated incident, the release said.
According to the release, both men were arraigned before Honorable Town Justice James Fox in the Town of Norwich Court and sent to the Chenango County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bail. They are each scheduled to reappear in court on June 26 within hours of each other.
