Tennessee Rape Suspect Arraigned

Martin, TN – A West Tennessee man has been arraigned for his alleged connection to five recent rape cases. 35-year-old Bruce Tuck of Gleason was booked into the Weakley County Jail in Dresden this morning after being taken to a hospital following his Wednesday arrest. Tuck had complained of chest pains after being arrested. He is being held without bond pending a preliminary hearing next Wednesday. Martin Police Chief David Moore says police have DNA evidence and stolen property that connect Tuck to a rape on August 30 in which a gunman broke into a home and tied up three people, then raped one of them. Moore says officers are still trying to find evidence in connection with the four other rapes.
