Police say a man wanted in connection with the alleged rape of a 12-year-old girl has been arrested.
Police say 19-year-old Obadiah Loyira turned himself in at the Minnehaha County jail Tuesday night on an unrelated warrant.
Loyira is facing first degree rape charges, as well as possession of child pornography charges. Lincoln County authorities say they believe he was involved in a January rape of a 12-year-old girl.
Two other people were arrested previously in the case including a 16-year-old male from Council Bluffs Iowa, and 20-year-old Elizio Kalimba of Sioux Falls. The juvenile's case was resolved in juvenile court and Kalimba is currently in the Minnehaha County jail awaiting trial.
Loyira is being held on $50,000 cash bond and will appear in court on October 28th.
