FALLS MAN ARRESTED IN TOWN RAPE INCIDENT

A Niagara Falls man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old girl here on Sunday, state police said.

Ezra C. Florence Jr., 31, of 1329 Pierce Ave. was charged with third-degree rape by Investigator David Pinnock, police said.

Florence was accused after the girl's mother told troopers she entered her home Sunday morning and found Florence and her daughter in bed. She said Florence fled through a window, clothes in hand, police said.

Florence pleaded innocent in City Court and was granted an adjournment until Oct. 17 in Town Court. He was remanded to the Niagara County Jail in lieu of $5,000 bail, police said.
