The Tuscaloosa Police Department says a domestic violence arrest led investigators to information implicating the suspect on a rape charge.
Officers received a domestic violence call around 7:28 a.m. to the 2100 block of T.Y. Rogers Jr. Avenue on Christmas Day. At the scene, officers found probable cause to arrest 43-year-old Fredrick Price for 3rd degree domestic violence assault against the 11-year-old victim. Price was taken to the Tuscaloosa County Jail.
Investigators following up on the information say they then found probably cause to arrest Price on 1st degree rape, 1st degree sexual abuse and 1st degree sodomy against a 15-year-old female.
Price is being held in the Tuscaloosa County Jail on a $181,000 bond.
