Superior Court: Belmont man indicted for allegedly raping child in Carver

Carver police traveled to Robert Edmonds home in Belmont this past November and arrested him after obtaining a warrant.

An investigation was conducted by a Carver police sergeant. Belmont police joined in on the effort to locate the 36-year-old man.

Edmonds was recently indicted by a grand jury and he’ll go before a Superior Court judge in the coming weeks. He is being charged with four counts of rape of a child with force, four counts of aggravated rape of a child, and two counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14-years-old.

According to court records, the charges stem from multiple incidents with a child in Carver starting in June of 1999.

An arraignment date has yet to be scheduled.
