Posted: Updated:
A 27-year-old Chattanooga man faces a rape charge after he reportedly attacked a woman on Monday while she was babysitting children.

Carvonta “Tay” Petty remained in jail on a $125,000 bond Wednesday.

The woman told police that she was babysitting children at a residence on Hollyberry Lane when Petty came over. The children were asleep at the time of the incident. She was lying on a mattress in the living room when Petty reportedly locked the door and forced himself on her.

Police arrested Petty after the woman and homeowner identified him as the attacker.

He is scheduled to go before Hamilton County Sessions Court Judge David Bales on March 31.
