2017 rape suspect arrested by Chattanooga police during traffic stop Wednesday
Chattanooga police arrested a man on Wednesday night for allegedly raping a person more than two years ago.
According to the arrest report, 44-year-old Nakia Lamont McMillan Sr. was one of two men who forced the victim into a truck in April of 2017 as she walking on Dodson Avenue.
The report says the victim told police she was taken to a trailer home on Boyce Street, where she was forced into a room and raped by two men.
The victim said she was able to get away when the men stopped and ran to a store where she called police.
The report says the victim was taken to a crisis center and consented to a sexual assault kit, which was sent to the TBI.
The report says DNA from the kit matched McMillan's DNA. DNA from the second suspect was also collected but did not "match any record on file."
Police say they confirmed during the investigation that McMillan was driving the truck when the victim was taken on Dodson Avenue.
Police say McMillan was arrested Wednesday night, more than two years later, when he was pulled over on Cameron Lane for driving without a license plate.
During the stop, police discovered the warrants on file for McMillan from the 2017 incident.
McMillan is being held at the Hamilton County Jail on $80,000 bond.
He scheduled to appear in court on July 12.
