WILSON, NC (WNCN) — Officials in Wilson responded to a call about a sexual assault on November 2, 2014. The reported assault had taken place months earlier, in June, and rendered a 12-year-old girl pregnant, Wilson police said.

The minor informed officers of her pregnancy and told them she was sexually assaulted by an unidentified man in June 2014 in an abandoned house near Elvie Street.

Now, just over eight years later, this unidentified man has been found and arrested, police said on Tuesday.

Donald Christopher Allen Whitley, 37, of Wilson, has posted $1.5 million secured bail and faces charges of first-degree rape, first-degree kidnapping and indecent imprisonment with one child.

The case had been under investigation for nearly seven years when detectives received new information about the case in April 2021 that led them to Whitley.

With the help of DNA testing and cooperation with the FBI, Whitney was identified as a suspect.

More than a year later, on July 14, 2022, detectives received warrants for Whitley’s three counts. On July 26, Whitley was arrested and given his $1.5 million bail.
