Gwinnett County sheriff's deputies arrested a man Tuesday for allegedly raping a 16-year-old girl in Norcross over the weekend.
Gwinnett sheriff's Lt. Sean Smith said Norcross police had secured felony warrants for Douc Nguyen, charging him with burglary and rape. Nguyen allegedly entered the victim's Norcross home unlawfully and raped her, Smith said in a statement released on Wednesday.
Smith said the sheriff's office Fugitive Unit conducted surveillance on a home on Avalon Forest Drive near Lawrenceville, and when investigators saw Nguyen leave the house in a Honda Accord, a Gwinnett police officer pulled the car over, and Nguyen was arrested.
Nyugen is being held without bond in the Gwinnett County Jail.
