A Scottsboro, Ala. man is being held in the Bradley County jail, charged with rape of a child and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Alvin D. Paschal, 26, was arrested Monday night in response to a BOLO (Be On The Lookout) on the vehicle he was driving. The BOLO indicated Paschal could be in the company of a 12 year-old runaway from Scottsboro.
Patrol deputies for the Bradley County Sheriff's Office found Paschal at the home of a relative in south Cleveland.
He was taken to the Judicial Center where detectives from the Scottsboro Police Department and Bradley County questioned both Paschal and the girl. Based on the interviews the suspect was arrested. Bond has been set at $51,500 but he will be held for Scottsboro authorities where additional charges are filed.
