In a press release sent out on Saturday, Jasper Police announced that Randall Kratzer, Jr., has been taken into custody in Chandler.
Kratzer was wanted in Dubois County on Rape and Sexual Battery Charges.
The 28 year old Kratzer allegedly forced his way into a north side Jasper apartment of his estranged wife on August 30th and forcibly battered and raped her.
An Anonymous tip came in to Indiana State Police and the U.S. Marshall’s Service that Kratzer was in Chandler. He was located and taken into custody without incident.
Kratzer now faces charges in Vanderburgh County for Auto Theft. He will then be brought to Dubois County at a later date to face the Rape and Sexual Battery charges here.
Jasper Police Department thanks the public for all of the tips that have been called in to help locate Kratzer and bring him to justice.
