LAS CRUCES — A 55-year-old Radium Springs man suspected of raping a young girl multiple times over the course of several years has been arrested.
Raymond James Brunson, of the 11900 block of Soldier Court in Radium Springs, N.M., is charged with 11 first-degree felony counts of criminal sexual penetration of a minor.
Las Cruces Police detectives learned of the allegations against Brunson within the past two months and immediately began investigating the claims. The alleged victim, who is now a teenager, told detectives that Brunson sexually molested her for several years from the time she was around 6 years old until she became a teenager.
During those years Brunson and the girl lived in the same home in Las Cruces.
Brunson was arrested Thursday, June 14, and was booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center on a $100,000 cash-only bond.
