TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — A 30-year-old Twin Falls man is accused of raping a 16-year-old girl after meeting on phone dating app “MeetMe.”

Patrick Ray Narcho was arraigned in magistrate court on a felony rape charge Thursday after serving a warrant for his arrest.

According to a probable cause affidavit, a runaway juvenile met Narcho shortly after her 16th birthday and claimed the two had sex about four times. She told police Narcho told her he was 19 years old.
