Bibb County grand jurors voted Tuesday to indict a Macon man on allegations he grabbed a 16-year-old girl as she walked on Craft Street and that he raped her behind a vacant house.
De’Andre Ricardo Taylor, 26, is charged with rape and kidnapping in connection with the alleged April 6 assault, according to an indictment filed in Bibb County Superior Court.
His lawyer has said Taylor is innocent and that he was accused in retaliation for something he told the alleged victim's brother.
Taylor is being held at the county jail without bond, according to jail records.
