A Turlock man has been arrested on a rape charge after allegedly admitting to attacking a female relative.

Miguel Angel Mendoza, 37, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of rape and is being held in Stanislaus County Jail on a $150,000 bail.

According to the Turlock Police Department, the alleged rape occurred in May 2011 but wasn’t reported until December. Mendoza initially denied the attack in December, but during a subsequent interview with investigators on Thursday he allegedly made an admission to the reported crime.

He is scheduled for an arraignment on Monday in Stanislaus County Superior Court.
