A teenager was arrested Wednesday after Decatur Police said he raped a 6-year-old girl.
Sergeant David Pruitt said 19-year-old Dominick Logan-Andrew Rice was arrested for the crime.
In a sworn statement, officers said the mother told them she stayed in a Decatur hotel in February. She shared the room with her boyfriend, the 6-year-old daughter they had in common, Rice–the boyfriend’s son– and a 7-year-old boy. Officers said Rice told them he slept in bed with both children while the mother and boyfriend slept in the bed next to them.
Police stated Rice admitted to confessing to his father that he had abused the girl. Officers said the parents were asleep in the bed when the abuse took place.
Investigators were able to arrest Rice on Wednesday. He was booked into the Macon County Jail on predatory criminal sexual assault of a victim under 13.
