SILVERTON, Ohio – A father has been arrested for raping his six-month-old son and infecting him with HIV.

Police say that Lenny Love, 29, from Silverton, Ohio, knew he had the virus when he raped his son in March.

He was arrested on Friday and charged with two counts of rape, one count of felonious assault and one count of possession of marijuana.

Police say he admitted the assault to them.

He is being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center while he awaits trial.

Police in Clarksville are currently hunting for a 28-year-old man who also knowingly infected a woman he met online with HIV.

Joseph Daundrey Thomas confessed to the woman the following day after sleeping with her in May and told her he had done it before and once spent three years in prison for the crime.
