MUNFORD, Tenn. — A Munford man has been arrested for raping a 2-year-old girl his girlfriend was babysitting.
Robert Gene High III, 26, is charged with rape of a child.
The babysitter said she woke up May 25 to check on the children she was watching.
The woman said she could not find a 2-year-old girl or her boyfriend, High.
The woman told Tipton County deputies she had to push open a bedroom door that was barricaded with a piece of furniture, and when she did, High was zipping his pants.
The child told the babysitter, and an examination later showed, she had been assaulted.
Prosecutors say High denies he assaulted the girl.
