A Malden man is in jail after he was arrested this week for allegedly kidnapping a girl and forcibly raping her. A Malden mother called Police just after 1 AM Monday to report her daughter arrived home late from curfew and was raped. The girl told police she gave a man who she knew a ride back to his place. 42-year-old Raymond Williamson allegedly forced the girl to perform a sex act on him in the car at knifepoint. He then raped her outside the vehicle in a remote location just across the Arkansas State line. She then dropped him off and drove herself home. The victim was evaluated at Dexter Hospital. Williamson is a registered sex offender and also admitted to having Hepatitis. He is jailed on a 250-thousand-dollar cash bond and will be back in court September 11th for a preliminary hearing in Kennett.
