MUNNSVILLE, NEW YORK: A New York man has been arrested and charged after he was accused of raping and impregnating a 14-year-old girl with disabilities.

Glynn Collins, 44, of Munnsville, a village of just 500-odd people located in the Town of Stockbridge in Madison County, is facing multiple counts of rape and sexual abuse, according to CNY Central.

Collins first came to the attention of the authorities after they were alerted by the medical staff at the Community Memorial Hospital in Hamilton about the rape of a teenage girl who had disabilities.

State Police revealed that the medical staff had become suspicious after she had come in with a sore throat and flu-like symptoms. They said that after an interview and a physical examination, they determined that the teen was pregnant.

During a subsequent investigation, detectives found that Collins was responsible, though they have not yet identified his relationship with the victim. 

The 44-year-old was charged with two counts of second-degree rape, a class 'D' felony, two counts of a second-degree criminal sex act, a class 'D' felony, second-degree sex abuse, a class 'A' misdemeanor, and endangering the welfare of a child, a class 'A' misdemeanor, in connection to the case.

He was remanded into custody at the Madison County Correctional facility but was released after he posted bail, which was set at $5,000. He is scheduled to appear in the town of Sullivan Court on November 11 at 2 pm.

MEAWW previously reported on a similar case where a Virginia health care worker was given two life sentences after he was found guilty of raping and impregnating two mentally disabled women at the non-profit where he worked.

Bernard Betts-King, 62, had raped the women, who had the mental ages of a five-year-old and a 12-year-old, at the MLVE Community Center and was described by a judge as "so vile."
