Man arrested for alleged rape of 14-year old girl

     Authorities in Izard County have charged a 19-year old man with felony rape after a 14-year old girl was able to escape him and call 911 after she said he forced her to have sex with him. The Izard County Sheriff's Department arrested Phillip Kyle Bunch of Cave City on Saturday morning. Bunch is being held in the Izard County Detention Facility.
     Izard County Sheriff Tate Lawrence said the girl said Bunch forced her to have sex but then she broke away and ran into a wooded area and called 911 about 6:30, Saturday morning. Members of the sheriff's department and Calico Rock Fire Department responded to an area off Chessman Road in Calico Rock. The girl was found on a bluff overlooking the railroad tracks and the White River.
     Bond for Phillip Kyle Bunch was set at $100,000 by District Judge David E. Miller.
