by JOHN A. WINTERS

A teen-ager is under arrest for raping an underage girl.

On Tuesday, Newnan Police officers responded to a call from a woman who said her 13-year-old daughter was raped, according to a Newnan Police Department report.

The mother said she came home to find her daughter in her room, and a 17-year-old male hiding in the bedroom closet of their residence on Christian Drive, an officer reported. 

“She said he (the suspect) then left the scene and that’s when her daughter said that he had just raped her,” the officer stated in the police report.

The suspect, Robert Hall, left the scene on a bicycle.

Hall later came back to the scene where he was taken by officers for questioning. He later was charged with rape, according to Coweta County Jail records.
