      Tuscaloosa man arrested on rape charges

      Tuscaloosa police have charged a 34-year-old man with second-degree rape.

      Juvenile investigators were called to a house in the 3400 block of 19th street on April 26, 2013. While they were searching the house, they found a 13-year-old female and Clemmie Lee Spencer, Jr. Inside. Juvenile investigators interviewed both the victim and suspect and collected evidence at the scene to be sent to the lab to be processed. After the evidence returned from the lab on March 17, 2014, investigators obtained a warrant for Spencer's arrest. An agent and officers found him at his house hiding under a car in the backyard Sunday.

      He was taken to the Tuscaloosa County jail.
