Jan 28, 2013 8:24 PM

Chico Police have arrested a suspect in a pair of rape and kidnappings south of the Chico State campus.
Action News has learned that 40-year-old Lonnie Keith is being held in the Butte County Jail in connection with two counts of kidnapping and one count of rape stemming from attacks in the South Campus area a year and a half ago.
District Attorney Mike Ramsey says an investigation continues.
The allegation is that Keith took the victims off the street and put them in his car before raping his victims.
Police are not saying what led to the suspect's arrests.
DNA was taken from scene, but authorities are not saying if that is what led to Keith’s arrest.
We expect to learn more about the case and the arrest at a news conference Tuesday afternoon.
