Macon man accused of raping 15-year-old girl

A 23-year-old Macon man was charged with rape early Thanksgiving morning on allegations he forced himself on a 15-year-old girl in January, according to an arrest warrant released Monday.

Duane Dejonn Grable, of Plant Street, also is charged with violation of probation, according to Bibb County jail records.

The warrant alleges the assault occurred at about 3:30 a.m. Jan. 13 in the girl’s bedroom and that Grable told her “to shut up and he was going to beat her all night.”

Later, Grable allegedly called the girl and apologized, according to the warrant.

Grable is being held without bond, according to jail records.

The location of the alleged rape was redacted on a Bibb County Sheriff’s Office incident report released Monday.

The report indicated the girl and Grable knew each other.
