Gwinnett County police are searching for a man accused of raping a 15-year-old girl.

Akeem Alleyne, 30, of Snellville, is wanted on one count each of kidnapping and rape and two counts of aggravated child molestation, Gwinnett police said in a news release Thursday afternoon. The victim’s mother called 911 just after midnight Wednesday to report the alleged assault.

According to police, the teenager made a hysterical phone call to a friend Tuesday to tell her she’d been raped. Investigators said they believe Alleyne took the teenager to his home and sexually assaulted her.

No other details have been released.

Alleyne’s whereabouts are unknown. Police are asking for help from the public to find him and have released photos of the suspect with two different hairstyles. Police also shared a photo of Alleyne’s truck, a gray Toyota Tundra with a Georgia license plate and tag number ADK7194.
