The suspect faces one charge of second-degree rape and one charge of second-degree sodomy, both felonies, according to police reports.
Anniston police Sgt. Chris Sparks said the victim’s father told police in December that he believed his daughter had had sex with the suspect.
Sparks said investigators were able to determine through forensic testing and interviews that the 18-year-old had sex with the victim.
Two warrants were issued for the suspect’s arrest on Jan. 28, according to a police report, and the suspect was arrested at his Welborn home on Thursday, Sparks said.
The suspect was in the Calhoun County Jail on Friday with bond set at $40,000, according to a jail worker. He is scheduled to appear in court March 10.
