Police received a report on Dec. 16 from a woman alleging she had been raped on South Street.

“We immediately developed three suspects based on victim descriptions and witnesses,” Lovvorn said.

Police apprehended Johnny Crenshaw, 27, and Lamanda Rudolph, 19 and charged both with rape, 1st, but said that Rudolph, the third suspect in the case, has evaded police.
