The Arrest of a Summerville man charged with rape is the result of a 2 month investigation by the Summerville Police Department. 41 year old Mario Quinell Jones is accused of raping a 31 year old woman back in July.
According to police, the woman was walking along Scoggins Street, as was Jones, when Jones reportedly took the woman into a wooded area and raped her. The woman told police at the time that she did not know her assailant and was only able to give a general description. However, a few weeks later she spotted a man who looked like her assailant in town and called police who were able to get a search warrant for a DNA sample that came up positive.
Jones was arrested and booked into the Chattooga County Jail by the Summerville Police Department earlier this week.
