The FBI says a man wanted in Tennessee for raping and kidnapping a teenage girl has been captured in Marksville. FBI spokeswoman Mary Beth Romig says an alert Avoyelles Parish deputy spotted 42-year-old fugitive Charles Parrish and the 15-year-old girl he'd allegedly abducted.
Romig says the FBI and State Police put surveillance in place, and made positive ID of Parrish and the teen victim, they moved in to make the arrest without resistance. Romig says the girl was seen leaving the hotel room and returning without Parrish nearby, so it's unknown if she was travelling with him willingly, or was under duress. she says further investigation will determine that, Romig says, either way, the girl is safe now, and will be returned to her family in White County, Tennessee.
