MONTICELLO — A Drew County man is being held on a $50,000 bond after he was arrested for allegedly raping a 17-year-old girl and sexually assaulting another on separate occasions. 

Jay Webb, 37, is alleged to have sexually assaulted one of the two girls during the early morning hours of July 14 while she was visiting a friend at Webb’s home in the Florence community, according to Drew County Sheriff Mark Gober.

While investigating the first 17-year-old girl’s report of sexual assault, authorities learned there may have been a second alleged victim.

During an interview with the second 17-year-old girl, she reportedly told authorities that Webb forcibly raped her on April 28, 2013 at his home. She was also visiting a friend at Webb’s home when the alleged rape is said to have occurred.

Webb was arrested Monday by the Drew County Sheriff’s Office and had a bond hearing Tuesday.

Circuit Judge Bynum Gibson set Webb’s bond at $50,000.
