Officers of the Washington Township Police Department arrested a Columbus City Schools student for felonies including rape and kidnapping for an alleged assault against a 15-year-old girl Jan. 5 at the Son Center, 8144 County Road 54, Lewistown.

Donovan Rayshun Clinchscales, 18, of Columbus, has also been charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, and gross sexual imposition, and was lodged in Logan County Jail about 1:30 p.m. Friday.

Officers received notification Jan. 7 from Franklin County law enforcement of the alleged assault that occurred during a church trip to the Son Center.

The victim is also reportedly from Columbus, and knew her alleged attacker previously.

The suspect is alleged to have pushed the girl into a separate boiler room, and forced himself on her, according to law enforcement reports. She reportedly sustained multiple second-degree burns on her leg from contact made with a heating unit during the assault.

Charges were filed following interviews with the victim about the attack.
