A man who police say raped a child and then skipped town is back in police custody.
Bobby Gene Elks of Washington has been arrested in Potts Camp, Mississippi Monday night.
Authorities say Elks was out on bond on the child rape charge when he failed to show up for court on January 26th. A tip from Crime Stoppers helped lawmen find Elks.
Elks is being held without bond, pending a hearing for his return back to Beaufort County.
