Police are looking for a man they say raped a 13-year old girl.

The alleged rape happened several weeks ago in Corbin.

Police hope someone might lead them to the suspect.

The victim's mother told me on the phone she always thought it was a safe place to live and never thought she would have to worry the safety of her daughter as she played in her own neighborhood.

About a month ago, family members say the 13-year old victim was raped in an old car outside Jason Taylor's home.

The young girl waited weeks before she told anyone about the rape, because she feared Taylor might hurt her.

A warrant is out for Taylor's arrest, but police can't find him and they're asking for your help.

“The accused on this is a Jason William Taylor, 24 year old white male, approximately 5-9, 165, and his last known address is Collins Lane,” Detective Colan Harrell said.

Jason Taylor is charged with second degree rape.

If you know where he is... you should call police.

The victim's mother says she wants Taylor to be caught so she can once again feel safe in her neighborhood.
