GEARY COUNTY – Law enforcement authorities in Geary County are investigating a suspect for an alleged rape.
Tomas Martinez-Maldonado, 41, Marietta, Georgia, was arrested on a Geary County District Court warrant charging him with the rape of a 12-year-old girl, according to Geary County Sheriff Tony Wolf.
The Kansas City, Kansas Police Department contacted Geary County authorities. “A Greyhound bus had made a stop in Kansas City and there was an alleged rape that occurred on the bus, however they had no idea where this rape took place,” according to Wolf.
The KBI was called to investigate and determined the crime occurred somewhere on Interstate 70 in Geary County in late September.

Martinez-Maldonado is allegedly an eight-time deported illegal alien, according to the sheriff.
