Officers say they've arrested a suspected rapist.

News 12 broadcast the suspect's description yesterday, and today Richmond County investigators say he dropped by, wanting to know why he'd been on the news.

Officers say they've arrested William Edgar Hayes, who also goes by "Tank."

Officers say the victim picked him out of a lineup.

He's been charged with the September 8 rape of a woman off Marks Church Road.
