Man arrested for rape of child

By Katherine Wartell

A 29-year-old man was arrested for rape and other sex offenses Wednesday on a Riley County District Court warrant stemming from an Oct. 21 incident during which he allegedly raped a child younger than 14 years of age.

George Ferenz, Manhattan, was arrested for rape, two counts of aggravated criminal sodomy and two counts of aggravated indecent liberties, all in relation to the same incident on Oct. 21.

Lt. Josh Kyle said the warrant charges Ferenz with engaging in oral copulation with the child and lewd fondling, in addition to the rape.

Ferenz’s relation to the child is unknown.

Ferenz, a Fort Riley soldier, was arrested by the Military Police on Fort Riley shortly after noon on Wednesday.

He is confined to the Riley County Jail on $100,000 bond.
