The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office arrested a man who they say raped a 13-year-old girl, then ran off from deputies.

Police took 23-year-old Corey Hughes of Burnside into custody around 10 Tuesday morning.

Deputies were first called to a home in the Antioch area Monday night after a woman said she caught a man raping her young daughter.

The mom told investigators she attacked the man, hitting him in the head with a coffee cup before he ran off.

Investigators say Hughes was found nearby and arrested.

When they got to the Sheriff's Office for questioning, they say Hughes got away from deputies and ran off.

Police say they found him Tuesday morning walking in Colonial Village in Somerset.

Hughes is facing rape and escape charges.
