A Spartanburg man faces sex charges after investigators say he raped a young girl who was spending the night with his younger sister.

Michael Travis, 18, of Spartanburg was arrested Friday, according to Spartanburg County deputies.

Deputies say the rape occurred in June. According to deputies, the victim's mother got suspicious after her daughter received several text messages and ignored numerous calls from Travis.

The mother said she questioned her daughter, who was evasive at first, but eventually confessed that she was attacked during a sleepover.

Travis was arrested on Friday and charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor between age 11 and 14 and false information to police. He is out of jail on a $4,000 bond.
