Traffic stop nets child rape suspect

Posted: Updated:

A Gaston County man is in jail after police discovered he was wanted on rape charges dating back to 2003.

Gaston County Police stopped Juan Carlos Serrano Monday night on a traffic violation.

When Serrano was finger printed, they discovered he was wanted for missing a court date to face charges of kidnapping and rape of a juvenile.

The arrest for the rape and kidnapping charges happened in 2003. Serrano posted bond and never showed up for court, police said.

Now Serrano faces several more charges one of them being forgery. His bond was set at $125,000.00.

However, immigration enforcement (ICE) has a hold on Serrano. So even if he posts bond he will not be released from custody.

Serrano faced a judge Tuesday on the traffic and forgery charges. He will be in superior court to face the rape charges sometime in February.
