A Fairfield County man was charged Wednesday with repeatedly raping a girl from the time she was 6 years old until she was a young woman, according to Bridgeport Police.

Orane Cole, 42, of 3412 Main St., of Bridgeport, was arrested Feb. 22 on a warrant constructed by Det. Walberto Cotto, said Av Harris, spokesman for the Bridgeport Police Department.

According to the warrant, Cole was charged with aggravated first-degree sexual assault, first-degree unlawful restraint, and threatening.
