Parma, Ohio (The Weekly Vice) -- Codey R. Hawks, a 19-year-old Michigan man was arrested Monday on charges that he repeatedly raped a 12-year-old boy who he met on X-Box Live.
Police say Hawks met the boy and his father through the online gaming community, X-Box Live, which allows members to communicate with each other while playing games.
Investigators say Hawks traveled by bus from Burton, Michigan to Parma, Ohio and asked if he could stay with the family until he was due to ship out with the National Guard in February. The family agreed.
Police say during his stay with the family, Hawks repeatedly raped the boy.
When the boy's parents became suspicious of the relationship, they questioned their son about what was going on and then called police. Detectives questioned Hawks, who allegedly admitted to sexually assaulting the boy when his parents weren't home.
Hawks was arrested and booked into the Cuyahoga County Jail on multiple counts of rape and gross sexual imposition.
