FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- A Fort Wayne man is in custody after kidnapping and raping a 15-year-old girl. 

Police arrested 35-year-old William James Ray on various charges after he allegedly kidnapped the girl from her bus stop Thursday morning. 

The victim was talking to a friend on her cell phone when it happened. The friend called the victim's mom and said she was in danger. 

 Ray apparently took the victim to another location where he sexually assaulted her. When he was done, he took her back to the bus stop.
