Demarcus Antionne Jenkins

Roswell Police arrested and charged 39-year-old Demarcus Antionne Jenkins with rape and aggravated assault.

On Jan. 10, at around 11:43 p.m., officers were dispatched to the area of 10750 Alpharetta Hwy., to meet with a third-party who told police he located an injured female victim reporting to have just been assaulted.

Officers quickly identified a suspect description, and within 15 minutes, were able to locate Jenkins behind an area business and take him into custody without incident.

Detectives with the Criminal Investigation Division responded to further the investigation.

Investigators determined that the victim had been walking down Mansell Rd. when she was verbally accosted and physically assaulted by Jenkins in the vicinity of a nearby business. The victim and Jenkins were not known to each other. The victim presented significant visible injuries and was transported to an area hospital for treatment.

Jenkins has been transported to the Fulton County Jail on the above listed charges, however, records show that this is not Jenkins’ first assault-related incident. Jenkins has four other battery charges from the Atlanta Police Department and the Fulton County Police Department between 2012 and 2014. Jenkins also received a simple assault charge from APD in 2015.
