A Dover man was arrested this week for allegedly raping an 8-year-old female relative, police said.
Dover Police arrested Ronald Waid, 41 of Dover, on Feb. 27 after an investigation revealed that he had allegedly raped the girl between 2005 and 2007, Dover Police Department Capt. Tim Stump said.
Waid threatened to kill her at the time if she told anyone what he was doing to her, Stump said.
Waid was charged with seven counts of first-degree rape, continuous sexual abuse of a child, aggravated menacing and terroristic threatening.
He was committed to James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrna in default of $200,000 secured bond.
