Macon Police Follow Leads in Rape Investigation

Macon Police Sgt. Jones says he's following several leads in a rape that allegedly happened early Sunday morning.

He says he received several CRIMESTOPPER tips Thursday afternoon and one tip Friday morning.

Jones says he's still working on following those leads, and verifying information given to police about the three men they are searching for.

Macon police asre asking for your help in identifying three men who may have information on a rape in a downtown night club.

That's according to a police news release.

Police released photos of the three men, but Jones wouldn't say where the photos came from.

Spokeswoman Jami Gaudet says the men may have information on the case.

Police will not release more details, such as the name of the nightclub, saying it may compromise the investigation.

Sgt. Jumaine Jones, an investigator on the case, also would not say whether the three are witnesses or persons of interest.

The news release says the three "could be college students - in or out of town, or working in or around Macon on a temporary basis."

If you have any information on the case, you can call Macon Police at 751-7500, or Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 1-877-68CRIME.

Gaudet says the news release is related to a Macon police report of a rape reported early Sunday.

Many details are blacked out in the copy of the incident report released to 13WMAZ -- such as the name of the nightclub and the address.

But the report says the assault happened sometime between 11 p.m. Saturday and 1 a.m. Sunday.

It says friends reported that the victim was dancing with a man for about 20 minutes, then disappeared for about 45 minutes.

Her friends searched for the woman, found her "unresponsive"  and carried her outside the club. She was taken to a local hospital, where police investigated.

The report says she was dancing with a white man, 25 to 30 years old, wearing a Hollister shirt.

Her friends suspected that the victim was drinking and may have been drugged by the man, the report says.
