SPRINGDALE, Ark. (KNWA) — A Springdale man is accused of raping a teen girl as she was having a seizure.

Colton Keith, 18, was booked into the Benton County Detention Center on suspicion of rape.

The teen told police that she woke up from a seizure and found Keith on top of her, unclothed and raping her, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Benton County Sheriff’s Office investigators obtained text messages in which Keith is reported to have asked the teen’s mother to have someone beat him up instead of pressing charges on him, according to the affidavit.

Keith has prior arrests for possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, the affidavit states.

Keith posted bond and has been released.
