Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Police have arrested a Savannah man in connection with the rape of a 16 year old girl. On Sunday morning, police captured 40 year old Edward Shuman near Anderson and Harmon Streets, just one day after releasing his picture to the public. They say Shuman struggled briefly with police before he was arrested.

He's accused of raping a 16 year old girl on March 15th. The girl told police he posed as a maintenance man to get into her family's apartment in the Blackshear Housing Complex.

Shuman is facing charges of rape, kidnapping, aggravated assault, battery and obstruction. He'll appear in Chatham County Court on Monday.
