Rape Suspect Captured After High Speed Chase

Authorities say a man accused of rape has been taken into custody after leading police on a high-speed chase through Chattanooga that involved multiple crashes.

Multiple media outlets report 20-year-old Cordarius Caldwell, who was wanted on charges of aggravated rape and false imprisonment, was arrested Wednesday.

Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron says Caldwell is accused of sexually assaulting a 20-year-old woman at gunpoint earlier that day at a Nashville residence.

Police say Caldwell fled the home and stole a car after officers responded to a call about a woman screaming.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says Caldwell then led officers on a pursuit before crashing into a concrete barrier wall.

Police say during the chase, Caldwell struck at least 15 vehicles, including the patrol car of Trooper Calvin Naipo, who sustained minor injuries.
