Thomasville - A suspected rapist surrenders after five months on the run.

Thirty-year-old Johnathan Wooten, also known as Chico, told Thomasville investigators he was tired of running.

Wooten was picked up in Grady County on Monday. Investigators say Wooten grabbed a 15-year-old girl, who was walking down the street in a Thomasville neighborhood, forced her inside a home and raped her.

Wooten is in the Thomas County jail charged with rape.
