Man Accused Of Luring Woman To Rape Her Through Craigslist

DALLAS, Ga. (AP) — A man accused of using a job posting on Craigslist to lure a woman to his house and rape her has been arrested.

Paulding County Sheriff’s Cpl. Ashley Henson says a woman told investigators she responded to an online advertisement for a job as a bartender at a party on May 27. Henson says the woman told authorities she was taken to a house and was raped.

Henson says 37-year-old Christopher Michael Smith was arrested Wednesday and is charged with rape, aggravated assault and kidnapping, among other offenses.

He’s being held without bond in the Paulding County jail and it’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
