Thomasville-- A Thomas County man is facing charges for raping a 13 year old girl with mental disabilities.
27 year old Eric Williams was arrested Monday night. Investigators say he attacked the girl in May behind an old school in Ochlocknee. They add that they're not sure whether Williams knew her.
Four years ago, Williams was accused of sodomizing a 15 year old boy who was also mentally challenged. Authorities say that case was dismissed because of a technicality.
