DALLAS, Ga. -- A Paulding County man faces rape and other charges after responding to a Craigslist advertisement on Monday, May 27.
The suspect, 37-year-old Christopher Smith responded to an ad online, which was posted by a woman advertising her bartending services. Cpl. Ashley Henson said Smith contacted the woman, and told her he wanted to hire her to bartend at his party.
Smith picked the woman up on the evening of the supposed party, but instead of having her bartend, he took her back to his home on Mt. Tabor Church Road and raped her, Henson said.
Following the assault, Smith took her back to her vehicle, ordered her to not call police and threatened her.
Along with rape, Smith was charged with aggravated assault, aggravated sexual battery, aggravated sodomy, kidnapping, marijuana possession and battery.
Smith is being held in the Paulding County Detention Center without bond. Detectives believe other victims may be involved and ask that anyone who has been in contact with Smith to call Criminal Investigations at (770) 443-3015.
