Man pleads guilty to raping teen in Macon

He allegedly stabbed the girl's family members in Newnan and drove off with her until he ran out of gas near Rivoli Road

MACON, Ga. — A Georgia man will spend 30 years in prison, and is facing more time on other charges, after raping a teenage girl in Macon.

According to a news release, Adrian Garcia-Zamarroon pleaded guilty Thursday to raping a girl that he allegedly kidnapped from Newnan.

After his release, he must abide by sex offender terms for the rest of his life and he could also face deportation due to his immigration status.


Prosecutors say Garcia-Zamarroon and the then 16-year-old girl knew each other. On Aug. 24, 2018, Garcia went to a business in Newnan where the girl and her family worked.

He then allegedly stabbed four people with a knife before taking the girl and driving off. He drove down I-75 until the car ran out of gas in Monroe County.

They say he walked the girl to a home under construction on Rivoli Road and raped her while staying there that night.

Law enforcement found the car and later spotted the pair walking down Rivoli Road the next morning, and he was taken into custody.

Garcia-Zamarroon still faces charges in Coweta County and charges filed by the US District Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia.
