A 41-year-old Atlanta man has been arrested after he raped a 15-year-old girl he ‘friended’ on Facebook and got her pregnant.
Posing as a 25-year-old, Anthony Antonio Norman sent the teenager a friend request on the social networking website last summer, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The pair chatted and through Facebook the man asked the girl, who hasn’t been named, for her address so he could meet her.

But when he arrived at her Mableton home, Norman forced his way into the house and raped the girl on the foyer rug, Smyrna police said.
The teenager is having the baby, and when it is born a DNA test will be conducted to determine whether Norman is the father.
The girl’s mother, who reported the rape to police, said she had contacted Norman through Facebook and that he had told her he would take care of the child if it is his.
