Accused Rape Suspect Arrested

Celestino Mejas-Parada

A Faulkner County man has been arrested accused of raping an employee.

On Monday, North Little Rock police arrested 42-year old Celestino Mejias-Parada, of Conway.

According to a warrant affidavit, in May of last year, officers were called to a North Little Rock address where a woman told them Mejias-Parada had raped her. The woman told police that Mejias-Parada gave her a ride to work and, when they arrived, he put her in a room and threatened to kill her if she screamed, then raped her.

Mejias-Parada is being held in the Pulaski County jail on a $100,000 bond.
