CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A man is under arrest for allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl in a Tri-County Mall bathroom.

Joshua Stanfield, 20, of Pleasant Run, met the victim on Snapchat, according to court documents.

On Sept. 13, Stanfield sent an Uber to pick the girl up and bring her to the mall, where Stanfield met her, Springdale police say in an affidavit.
