JUNIUS, N.Y. — A Trumansburg man has been charged with multiple counts of rape after allegedly forcing a 16-year-old employee to have sex on multiple occasions.

The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office arrested Jesse M. Farina-Geiger, 24, of Trumansburg, on Aug. 2 and charged him with two counts of first-degree rape, four counts of third-degree rape and endangering the welfare of a child.

According to the Finger Lakes Times, the crime occurred at the Waterloo Premium Outlets. Deputies declined to say which store to protect the identity of the victim.
