Lawrence man arrested on suspicion of raping teenage girl

January 30, 2013


A 33-year-old Lawrence man was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of rape involving a teenage girl, said Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence Police Department spokesman. The man was arrested at the police department's offices in the 4800 block of Bob Billings Parkway and booked into Douglas County Jail about 9 p.m. Tuesday. He is being held without bond.

Police would not release more details about the case Wednesday, McKinley said, because the arrest is part of an ongoing investigation of other offenses.

The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they are convicted.
