Suspect charged with rape

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomasville Police have identified and are looking for a man accused of raping a woman while she was walking in an alley, early Saturday morning.

Detectives said the victim recognized Horace Barber Jr., 47, after the attack happened in an abandoned house.  The victim told police she is related to her suspected attacker.

"At the time unable to determine who it was," said Thomasville Police Captain Maurice Holmes.  "She was taken down to the ground and subsequently dragged inside of the vacant house. At that time she still didn't know who she was up against, and she put up a fight."

Barber, who lives on Thompson Road in Quitman, has been charged with aggravated assault, kidnapping and rape.

Anyone with any information where he can be found is asked to call Thomasville Police.
