Floyd County man accused of attempting to rape teen during rampage

A Floyd County man faces serious charges after being accused of ransacking a victim’s house and trying to rape an underage teenage girl early Monday, according to multiple media reports.

Jarrod Cole Duncan, 36, of Rome, was arrested after police said he physically kicked down the door of a girl’s bedroom, physically attacked her and threatened to rape her, the Rome News-Tribune reported. 

Before that, he’s accused of violently emptying the contents of the home’s refrigerator on to the kitchen floor and damaging the fridge and microwave, the newspaper reported. When police arrived, he resisted arrest, according to jail records.

Duncan faces felony charges of child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes, aggravated assault, terroristic threats and acts, first-degree child cruelty and exploitation and intimidation of an elder person, Floyd County jail records show. He also faces several misdemeanors, including disorderly conduct, obstruction of an officer, two counts of criminal trespass, simple battery and simple assault.

He remains in jail without bond. AJC.com has reached out to Floyd County police and the sheriff’s office for more information on this incident.
