MUNFORD, TN -

(WMC) - A 26-year-old man is charged with rape after his girlfriend told police she caught him alone with the 2-year-old girl she was babysitting.

Robert Gene High III, 26, of Munford was arrested Tuesday and charged with rape of a child.

According to Tipton County Sheriff's Office, the babysitter woke up to check on the children she was babysitting. That's when she noticed the 2-year-old girl and her boyfriend were both missing. She said she found them in a room in which the door was blocked by furniture. When she was able to get in, she saw High zipping up his pants and the little girl was half naked on the bed.

The child indicated she had been touched. She was then taken to the hospital. The evaluation done at Memphis Sexual Assault and Rape Crisis Center supports the allegations that the 2-year-old was raped.

High denied raping the child. His bond was set at $100,000. He is scheduled to appear in court on June 20.
