An Alabama man was arrested on multiple rape charges involving a juvenile, for what officials are calling “heinous” crimes.

Fred Wayne Jackson, 51, of Alabaster, was arrested April 7 on multiple counts of rape and other charges following an investigation by the Alabaster Police Department.

Jackson is charged with two counts of rape first degree and assault with bodily fluids.

The investigation began when the department was contacted regarding the sexual abuse of a juvenile.

Jackson was booked into the Shelby County Jail on April 7 and is currently being held on a $121,000 bond.

“Crimes against children are particularly heinous, and we will aggressively pursue these cases,” said APD Detective Randy Ray.
