According to Lt. Mike Richardson, of the GPD Criminal Investigation Division, Octavious Russell, of Griffin, has been arrested and charged with rape, aggravated sodomy and burglary.
Investigators were on Sunday called to a residence on D.F. Fuller Drive where the victim reported an unknown man had entered her home and raped her.
