MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis police arrest a man they say raped a young girl.
Freddie Cooper, 38, is charged with aggravated statutory rape.

Police did not release the victim’s exact age but the crime report states that Cooper and the victim have an age gap of 22 years and 9 months.
Cooper was taken into custody where he admitted to police he had sex with the underage teen.
