Coffee County Arrest

Authorities have arrested a suspect that may have victimized more than a dozen young girls in the Wiregrass area. Some of the victims are reportedly as young as 12.

Last Friday night, 39-year old Bobby Monaghan reportedly raped a 17-year-old girl at his home in the Sconiersville Community of Coffee County. He was arrested a short time later on a disorderly conduct charge in Geneva.

Monaghan is charged with six counts of rape, two counts of incest and one count of sodomy.

Coffee and Geneva Counties are working together interviewing the reported victims.

Police say he may have used alcohol to get the girls drunk at parties.

Chief Deputy Williams wants to talk to the parents of those children who may have been victimized in this case. Contact the Coffee County Sheriff's Department at these numbers 894-5535 or 347-1211.

Additional charges are expected to be filed against Monaghan. He is in the Coffee County Jail under bonds totaling $750,000.
