A Springs man was charged with second-degree rape after information was found on Facebook, according to .
Enrique D. Monge-Pucha, 22, of Springs, was indicted in Suffolk County Criminal Court on May 18 on charges that he had sexual intercourse with a girl who is under the age of 15. In New York, the age of consent is 17.
He is being held on $150,000 bond or $75,000 cash bail at the Suffolk County jail in Riverside.
Police said a sex abuse investigation began on May 11, when information was gathered from Facebook that the defendant had had sexual intercourse with the girl, according to Town Police Detective Lt. Chris Anderson.
The girl told police the incident took place in February 2012, though she knew the man under a different name of David Alvarez.
When police officers tried to arrest the defendant there was a brief struggle before he was placed into custody.
East Hampton Town Justice Catherine A. Cahill arraigned Monge-Pucha on charges of second-degree rape, criminal sex act in the second-degree with a victim under 15, both felonies, and misdemeanors of resisting arrest, and acting in a manner injurious to a child.
He was later indicted on May 18. He is due to be arraigned before Suffolk County Criminal Court Judge Barbara Kahn on Wednesday. The Legal Aid Society is representing him.
