CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Jonathan Neal played an important role on Mallard Creek's Championship Football team.
The 18-year-old senior played defensive end on a team that went undefeated.
Monday afternoon, the teen was behind bars in the Mecklenburg County Jail, charged with second-degree rape for allegedly assaulting a 14-year-old freshman at the school.
The incident happened last Thursday around 3:35 in the afternoon, which is an hour after school gets out.
"I feel bad for the parents, and I feel bad for her, and I just wish the best for her," said a student who didn't want to be identified.
Investigators say the reason Neal was charged with second-degree rape is because no weapon was used-- only physical force.
Neal had his first appearance this afternoon. The judge reduced his bond from $50,000 to $25,000 secured.
If he gets out, he'll be on electronic monitoring and house arrest, but the judge will allow him to attend school.

Here is a link to a black suspect in a quadruple murder of a white family and their housekeeper
05-21-2015, 12:49 AM
Police have identified a suspect in a quadruple homicide and fire that killed three family members and a housekeeper in the District last Thursday.
Daron Dylon Wint, 34, of Maryland is wanted on a D.C. Superior Court arrest warrant charging him with first-degree murder while armed.
On May 14, Savvas Savopoulos 46, his wife, Amy, 47, their son, Phillip Savopoulos, 10, and housekeeper Veralicia Figuaroa, 57, were found dead at a mansion near the National Cathedral in Northwest D.C
Detectives say they believe the killers held the four victims captive for about 10 hours, and that they successfully forced the Savopoulos family to get them about $40,000 in cash, which was delivered to the house by an assistant to Savvas Savopoulos.
Metropolitan Police Department Chief Cathy Lanier has confirmed that three of the four victims were beaten or stabbed before the killers set fire to the almost-$5 million mansion.

Suspect ID'd in DC arson, quadruple homicide
Washington (CNN)—Authorities have identified a 34-year-old man as the suspect in last week's quadruple homicide inside a Washington mansion that was also set ablaze.
Daron Dylon Wint is wanted on charges of first degree murder while armed, the Metropolitan Police Department said Wednesday night.
Detectives have not released a motive for the killing, but investigators believe money was a prime factor.
Whoever was in the house was looking for money," a source with knowledge of the investigation told CNN Wednesday. A separate law enforcement source disclosed that the assailant -- or assailants -- who set the mansion on fire and killed residents Savvas Savopoulos, his wife Amy, their 10-year-old son Philip and the family's housekeeper, Veralicia Figueroa, got away with $40,000.
The Washington Post and a local NBC station reported Wednesday that one of Savopoulos' employees came to the mansion while the incident was ongoing and dropped off a package with $40,000 inside.
The victims were found to have suffered from blunt force trauma, and, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation, authorities believe the four victims were killed prior to the house being set ablaze. The source said the victims were bound with duct tape and held captive by the perpetrators. There were signs of torture to at least one of the victims.
The developments offer some clarity to an incident that's puzzled observers since firefighters were called to tackle a fire on the second floor of the Savopoulos' home . At that time, police flagged a blue Porsche that went missing from the home and was found Thursday afternoon, abandoned and ablaze.
A few details offering hints at the run-up to the incident have emerged in the days following the fire.
Bernardo Alfaro, the husband of the slain housekeeper, added another piece to the puzzle in an exclusive interview with CNN affiliate WJLA Wednesday. He said he received a phone call from Savvas Savopoulos when he went to check in on his wife on Thursday, telling him she hadn't come home the night before because she was at the hospital with a sick Amy Savopoulos.
"I'm sorry because I didn't call you," Alfaro said Savopoulos told him. "(Veralicia) is at the hospital ... she has to stay with my wife because she was feeling bad and asked Vera to go with her."
Alfaro said he thought that explanation was curious.
"I started thinking, 'Why? She doesn't drive. She doesn't speak very good English,'" he said.
Alfaro saw his wife for the last time after 10 years of marriage on Wednesday, when he took her to the bus to go to work. His last words to her were, "I love you, God bless you."
When he tried to call his wife that afternoon, Alfaro said, the phone went straight to voicemail. She didn't come home that night, and when Alfaro went to the house the next day to investigate, he saw something was amiss.
"I saw the two cars ... the Porsche was on the street ... I kept knocking on the door," he said.
Savvas Savopoulos, 46; his wife, Amy Savopoulos, 47; 10-year-old son, Philip; and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa, 57, were found dead in their $4.5-million home near D.C.’s Embassy Row — where diplomats live, as well as the U.S. vice president — when it was set ablaze on May 14, officials

Before he could investigate further, he received the call from Savopoulos offering the explanation for her absence.
A second housekeeper, Nelitza Gutierrez, also received a suspicious text message from Amy Savopoulos just hours before the fire began telling her to stay home.
The day before, Gutierrez had received a voicemail from Savvas Savopoulos telling her not to come the following day because his wife was sick.
"Sometimes you never understand why something happens, but I'm lucky I'm still here," Gutierrez told CNN's Joe Johns.
Savvas Savopoulos was the CEO and president of American Iron Works, a building materials manufacturer based in Hyattsville, Maryland, and has two other children, both daughters, who were away at boarding school at the time of the incident. The family's home drew notice in part because of its location in a tony, embassy-dotted neighborhood in northwest D.C., just a few minutes from the Vice President Joe Biden's residence.

The Dr has to be white
87 year old robbed
05-24-2015, 07:31 PM
In search of the perfect birthday gift for her boyfriend, a 19-year-old Porter woman browsed through numerous photos of handmade and vintage items posted on Etsy - a huge online marketplace that went public in April.
A leather belt with intricately hand-tooled designs caught her eye. It was being sold by Leather Works by Julie Rae, one of Etsy's more than 1 million sellers. Because the seller did not accept debit or credit cards, the woman messaged the site and arranged a meeting north of Houston along FM 787 to exchange $100 for the one-of-a-kind belt.
But the "seller" who arrived in a black pickup on May 16 to complete the deal was not Julie Rae, but two men who planned something more insidious and violent.
The men pretended to have her belt, but then forced the terrified young woman into their truck. They drove to an isolated spot where they raped her and then threw her onto the road to find her way home, according to authorities, who say they are still searching for the suspects. One attacker is described as a Hispanic male between the ages of 30 and 35, about 5 feet 7 with a medium build and an earring in his left ear. The other was described as a black male between 35 and 40, 5 feet 9 with a medium build.
