A Greenville teenager reported Monday she was raped while vacationing on Hilton Head Island.

The victim, then 13, was visiting the area in June 2010 when she met a boy named "Ben," according to Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Robin McIntosh.

She then had sex with the suspect against her will on a beach near Folly Field Beach Park, the victim told deputies.

The incident is under investigation, McIntosh said.
