E. Longmeadow man charged with statutory rape of a child

EAST LONGMEADOW, MA (WSHM) -

A 24-year-old East Longmeadow man was arrested and charged with statutory rape of a child earlier in the week.

Police told CBS 3 Matthew Tannen was also charged with indecent assault and battery on a child under 14.

Authorities said this was not a rape of force, but that the charge did include an aggravating factor because the age difference between the suspect and the victim was 10 years or more.

Tannen was arraigned on Wednesday. The judge set bail at $1,000.
