Man Accused of Raping Elk County Teen

A Tennessee man is in jail for allegedly raping an Elk County girl over the weekend.

Emporium State Police say they were helping St. Marys Police locate a missing 13-year-old, who they found at a home along CCC Memorial Highway in Cameron County. They say she was with 20-year-old Jonathon Allen Prater, and determined that he sexually assaulted her.

Prater is charged with rape, involuntary sexual intercourse, statutory sexual assault, aggravated indecent assault and interference with custody of children, all felonies.

He’s in Elk County Jail on $250,000 bail.

Note: This is not the same person accused of killing an Eldred teenager earlier this year. That is Jonothan Edward Prather, who is in Potter County Jail without bail.
