ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. The Arkansas City Police Department arrested an Arkansas City male Monday on a warrant for rape in connection with a May incident involving a juvenile.

Gustavo Jesus Tzep Gutierrez, 18, was arrested on suspicion of felony rape of a child younger than 14 years old. He was transported to and booked into the Cowley County Jail in Winfield in lieu of $150,000 bond through Cowley County District Court in Arkansas City.

Tzep Gutierrez remained in custody at the time of this release.

Officers took a report on May 29 that a 13-year-old Arkansas City female had consensual sex with Tzep Gutierrez. This incident was reported to police by the mother of the juvenile female.

The complaint was investigated and a warrant was obtained for Tzep Gutierrez’s arrest. Earlier today, he was located at his residence in the 600 block of North Seventh Street and taken into custody.

A defendant’s guilt or innocence is to be determined by a court of law.
