Tommy Allen Fowler Jr.

A 28-year-old Dalton man is being held without bond after a juvenile accused him of rape, according to the Whitfield County Sheriff’s Office.

Tommy Allen Fowler Jr., of 179 King Circle, was scheduled for a bond hearing on Tuesday but it was continued until Oct. 15. Fowler is charged with rape and false imprisonment.

Capt. Paul Woods with the sheriff's office said Fowler was at a residence with multiple people on Friday night and at some point Fowler called the juvenile into a bedroom. Woods said the victim told investigators that Fowler held a pistol to her head and “forced himself on her.”
