Griffin PD investigating violent rape


The Griffin Police Department is investigating a Sunday afternoon rape that authorities say took place with a child present in the home.
Lt. Mike Richardson, of the GPD Criminal Investigation Division, said the incident occurred between 3 and 4 p.m. on D.F. Fuller Drive.

“She was taken to the Southern Crescent Sexual Assault and Child Advocacy Center where evidence was collected,” Richardson said. “She (the victim) provided a description of the suspect and investigators are following that.”
Cpl. Kelly McKinney is the case agent, and anyone with information that may lead to the identification and apprehension of the rape suspect is asked to contact her at 770.229.6450 or
