Randall Bauer, 60, was arrested Monday on a warrant charging him with rape of a six-year-old girl.
The incident allegedly occurred in the Savonburg area late last week and was investigated by Allen County officers on Friday, at which time they interviewed Bauer. He is being held without bond in the Allen County Jail.
Murphy told the Register Bauer previously was convicted of a sexual offense in another state for which he served time in prison.
He has lived in Savonburg one year, although he has lived “in and out of the area for the last 15 years,” a relative said.
