The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation arrested a man on child rape charges on Monday.

Randall Lyn Smallwood, 47, of Algood, was arrested and charged with eight counts of rape of a child and two counts of aggravated sexual battery.

The charges stem from alleged abuse that occurred between January 2001 and June 2005.

Police reported that during that time period, Smallwood abused a female victim while living in Jackson County.

The victim was ages eight to 13 when the abuse occurred and she came forward to her mother regarding the incidents with Smallwood during the summer of 2012.

At that time, the TBI began an investigation into the allegations.

Smallwood was arrested Monday and booked into the Jackson County Jail on $50,000 bond.
