ROCK HILL A Rock Hill man is accused of forcing a 15-year-old girl to have sex with him at his home on Bynum Avenue, police say.

Bobby Thompson, 19, was arrested Monday and charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor, according to documents from the Rock Hill Police Department.

Thompson is accused of forcing the girl into a bedroom and pushing her down on the bed to have sex. But Thompson claimed the sex was consensual and said the girl told him she was 17, the report states.

The girl and her mother initially told police they didn't want to press charges. Yet, because the girl is underage, Thompson was arrested after an investigation.
