UNION COUNTY, N.C. — A 19-year-old who already faced multiple charges of rape is accused of raping another teenage girl while out on bond in Union County.

According to WSOC, Robert Viehmeyer has been sought by deputies for more than one week.  Warrants were drawn for his arrest after a 17-year-old girl reported she was raped by the suspect at his home in Indian Trail in early March.

Viehmeyer was out of jail on a $100,000 bond awaiting trial on three other sexual assault cases when the alleged rape occurred.

The suspect was previously accused of raping three different teen girls at his parents’ home in July 2011 and was arrested in February on drug possession charges.

Family members told the station they haven’t seen Viehmeyer since he was first arrested last year.

Deputies said Viehmeyer should be considered dangerous. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call the Union County Sheriff’s Office.
