Posted By on Tue, Oct 21, 2014 at 7:09 PM

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police have charged a 62-year-old convicted sex offender with rape and probation violation after he attacked a senior woman in Savannah last Wednesday.

James Thomas Bateman of the 5500 block of Montgomery Street was arrested after Metro Police stopped him driving near the Thomas Square/Midtown location where the assault occurred.

"He was visiting a woman he knew when he attacked her," police say.


Bateman had served a 15-year sentence from a rape and incest charge in 1995 and later served seven months of a 10-year sentence for six counts of failure to register as a sex offender.

Violent Crimes detectives continue to investigate.
