A Villa Rica man has been charged with raping a woman who responded to a Craig's List ad looking for a roommate, police said Thursday.
Christopher Harris, 31, was arrested Tuesday by Villa Rica police and charged with rape and sodomy. The incidents allegedly happened at a home in the Ashley Highlands subdivision off Conners Road in west Douglas County.
Capt. Keith Shaddix said the 23-year-old victim saw the ad Harris put on Craig's List and moved into the home.
Harris allegedly raped the victim, who suffers from a mental disease, multiple times while she was in the home, Shaddix said.
Shaddix said the victim was raped the first night she stayed in the home with Harris and on other occassions.
The victim only stayed a few nights, maybe less than a week, before moving back to live with her mother, according to Shaddix.
The investigation is still in its early stages and there was only enough cause to arrest Harris, Shaddix said.
Harris appeared in Douglas County Magistrate Court Wednesday. His bond was denied.
