A Riverhead man faces a first-degree rape charge after turning himself in to Riverhead police last Wednesday evening, authorities said.

Daniel McCloud, 31, was arrested and charged with first-degree rape, a felony, according to a police blotter report.

He was processed and held for arraignment the next morning.

• Kyle Stoddard, 21, was charged with burglary and criminal mischief charges for his alleged involvement in a break-in at Riverhead Middle School last October, Riverhead police said.

The stolen items appeared to be smeared with blood, according to a previous report. Mr. Stoddard was arrested and charged with third-degree burglary and third-degree criminal mischief, police said. He was processed and held for arraignment.

The town’s buildings and grounds department was notified to pick up the stand, police said.

He was arrested on a civilian complaint, processed and taken to be held at Suffolk County jail, police said. In March, Mr. Pritchard was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana. That case is still ongoing.
