OGDENSBURG, New York (WWNY) - A Lisbon man is accused of raping a child under 13 years old.

St. Lawrence County sheriff’s deputies say 36-year-old Douglas Monroe allegedly had sex with the child over 18 months in the city of Ogdensburg and the town of Lisbon.

He was charged with predatory sexual assault against a child, first-degree rape, first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, first-degree criminal sex act, and first-degree sexual abuse -- all felonies.

According to court documents, the assaults began when the child was 12 and continued after their 13th birthday.

Monroe was arraigned Monday in Ogdensburg city court and jailed without bail.

Deputies say their investigation is ongoing.
