Gordon Sheriff’s deputies assisted Fairmount Police in recent days in arresting a man suspected of sexual crimes against two women, including raping a teenage girl in Resaca.

Gordon County Sheriff Mitch Ralston says deputies were called in by Fairmount officers Thursday June 6th to investigate a claim by a 17-year-old who said she had been raped by Danny Lamar Collis Sr., age 61, of Resaca at a house sometime in the previous two days. Collis was arrested by Sheriff’s deputies Friday.

Collis is now facing felony charges of Rape and Aggravated Sexual Battery and is also charged with a single count of Sexual Battery in a case against a second female victim. As of Tuesday he remained in the Gordon County Jail.
