A 20-year-old east Macon man jailed Friday is accused of raping a 14-year-old girl while her mother was at work earlier this month.

Shonquavious Dequan Mitchell, of a Riggins Mill Road address, is charged in connection with a rape reported Oct. 12.

According to an incident report from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office, a 31-year-old woman called police to her apartment complex about 4:30 p.m. that day to report her daughter had been raped. The woman told a deputy she’d left her daughter and two other children at the apartment to go to work about two hours before her call, the report said.

A person only referred to as “Woodie” had come to the apartment while she was gone, the woman told the deputy.

The woman’s daughter said Woodie “got her to go to the back room,” the report said. The woman told the deputy her daughter would only say “he forced me to.”

Mitchell was arrested about 10 a.m. Friday and charged with rape. He remained in the Bibb County jail without bond Friday evening.
