Jairo Rosas

A 22-year-old Augusta man is in jail after police say he kidnapped and raped his girlfriend’s sister overnight Monday.

According to Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Blaise Dresser, Jairo Rosas hid in the victim’s trunk while she was at work Monday evening at a fast food restaurant on Wrightsboro Road.

After the woman dropped off her co-workers, Rosas jumped out of the trunk and drove the victim to an isolated area off Dixon Airline Road where he raped her, Dresser said.

Investigators said Rosas has children with the victim’s sister.

He was booked into the Richmond County Jail on Tuesday on charges of kidnapping and rape. He is also being held for U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement.
