Lebanon police served a warrant for statutory rape of an authority figure on a suspect in Wilson County Jail awaiting trial for aggravated robbery charges.

Larry W. Dunn, 36, of Lebanon, was charged Friday while awaiting a Jan. 30 court date on two counts of aggravated robbery. Dunn was additionally charged with violation of protection order Oct. 1.

Police Chief Scott Bowen wouldn’t release details on the case because the victim is a juvenile.

On Sept. 16, Lebanon police charged Dunn with armed robberies at a convenience store that same day and a hotel a week prior.

Bowen said Dunn was charged with two counts of aggravated robbery after tips led to a vehicle in which Dunn was traveling.

Officers responded to an armed robbery call at Square One Express at 201 W. Main St. Bowen said the clerk told officers a white man entered the store, pulled out a knife and demanded money.

Bowen said detectives stopped a vehicle matching the description given by the clerk later the same day. A 17-year-old girl was driving, and Dunn was the passenger.

Bowen said Dunn confessed to the Square One Express robbery, as well as an armed robbery Sept. 7 at the Executive Inn.

Dunn was booked into Wilson County Jail, where he remained Wednesday on $200,000 bond for the two aggravated robbery charges and an additional $7,500 for the statutory rape charge. A Nov. 21 court date was set for the most recent charge.
