A Tahoe City man is being held on $1 million bail in Placer County Jail after being arrested for allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl.

Kenneth Rockwell Seymour, 55, left, was arrested at his home in the Dollar Point area April 26, the morning after the rape allegedly occurred, according to a sheriff's news release.

Placer County Sheriff's deputies learned of the alleged incident after a family member of the girl called 9-1-1.

Seymour also allegedly provided the girl with alcohol, the release states.

Seymour faces several charges, including two counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a minor, two counts of sexual intercourse with an intoxicated victim, two counts of an adult having sex with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, the release states.

Seymour, whose home is located in an enclave of luxury rental homes about 2 miles from Tahoe City, also lives part-time in Nevada.
