On June 13, 2020, the ACCPD began an investigation into the rape of a 21-year-old female UGA student, which occurred at a downtown residence. Subsequent to that investigation, police obtained a warrant charging Bacarri Rambo, 29 of Athens, with rape. Rambo was arrested on the warrant on June 15th 2020 and booked into the Clarke County Jail.
