While the boy was being treated at a local hospital, officers got a call from his grandparents, who had gone looking for the vehicle. They told the officers the vehicle had returned to the park, leaving soon after, and that they were following it. The man was identified as 61-year-old Jeffery Lynn Gregory, who had an outstanding failure to appear warrant for his arrest, issued in McMinn County. Officers tracked down the vehicle and stopped it. They put Gregory in custody on the outstanding warrant.

During questioning, Gregory told officers that he had been at the park. He told them he saw “a young white guy that appeared to be seventeen to eighteen years old.” (Note: The report does not specify the victim’s age). Gregory told investigators the two went into the bathroom to engage in a sexual encounter, with the ‘teen” initiating the contact, according to the report. Officers then booked Gregory on child rape charges. He’s now in custody at the McMinn County Justice Center.
