Marque Brown. Rape Suspect

In Georgia, an Early County man is in jail without bond in connection with a home invasion and rape that happened early Sunday morning in Blakely.

Twenty-two-year-old Marque Brown allegedly broke into a house on North Main Street and assaulted an 80-year-old woman.

After several hours, the woman was able to free herself and go to neighbors for help.

Several deputies received minor injuries as they struggled to arrest brown.
