ARKANSAS CITY, Kan.  The Arkansas City Police Department arrested an Arkansas City man Tuesday on suspicion of raping two juveniles females who are younger than 14.

Bobby Dean Jones, 32, was arrested on suspicion of two felony counts of rape by sexual intercourse with a child younger than 14 years old.

He was transported to and booked into the Cowley County Jail in Winfield in lieu of $250,000 bond through Cowley County District Court in Arkansas City.

Jones remained in custody at the time of this report.

The police department’s investigations division began conducting an ongoing sexual abuse investigation Tuesday in response to several incidents reported to have occurred in the previous days.

Since then, numerous interviews were conducted with all parties involved and multiple pieces of evidence were collected for forensic examination.

Through the course of the investigation, police determined they had sufficient evidence to take Jones into custody as a suspect in the case.

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