SHEFFIELD, AL (WAFF) - Sheffield Police made an arrest in connection with a violent rape at the Colbert Square Apartments. The attack happened in October.
Investigators said Tavares Terrell Garner is responsible for the attack. He's being held at the Colbert County Detention Center.
Investigators said Garner claimed he was looking for someone, and when the victim opened the door to talk to him, he forced his way inside and sexually assaulted her.
Police said Garner attempted to clean up the scene and then forced the woman outside naked, stealing her car and cell phone. Investigators later determined the man went to two other apartments with the same story, trying to find a victim.
