SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — Here’s a look at the top stories as of 4 p.m.


A 19-year-old man is charged with rape and child pornography, according to the Sioux Falls Police Department.

A police spokesman said officers were called to an apartment Thursday night for concerns about a relationship between a 14-year-old girl and the man.  

While the 14-year-old girl and the suspect say they are in a relationship, police say charges were brought because she is under the age of consent.
