A Montauk man was arrested Monday night on rape and child endangerment charges after police said he had an inappropriate sexual relationship with a teenage girl, according to a Feb. 25 report in the East Hampton Press.

Juan J. Zhingri-Deleg, 27, was charged with second-degree rape and endangering the welfare of a minor. He faced a judge Tuesday at the East Hampton Town Justice Court and was ordered held on $100,000 cash bail or $200,000 bond.

Zhingri-Deleg was arrested at 7:20 p.m. Monday after investigators received a report of an “inappropriate relationship” he was allegedly carrying on with a 14-year-old girl. Authorities told the East Hampton Press the charge stemmed from the victim’s age and there was no indication of force.

Newsday reported Zhingri-Deleg was “an acquaintance” of the victim’s family. Investigators provided no additional details regarding the victim’s relationship to Zhingri-Deleg.

After his arraignment Tuesday, Zhingri-Deleg was being held at the Suffolk County Jail.

Detectives said their investigation is still ongoing.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call investigators at 631-537-7575. All calls will be kept confidential.
