A 46-year-old man faces aggravated rape and especially aggravated kidnapping charges after police found two missing teenage girls at a Wilcox Road address, according to Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Janice Atkinson.

Christopher Johnson was hospitalized with what police are calling a self-inflicted knife wound from a suicide attempt, Atkinson said.

The sheriff’s office reported Friday that Johnson had taken the 13- and 14-year-old girls to McDonald’s on Browns Ferry Road on Thursday night and that the girls didn’t return home.

Friday night, the girls were located at the Wilcox Road address and told investigators Johnson had sexually assaulted them, Atkinson said.

Relatives told police Johnson had a drug problem, she said.

If all of the charges are true then I'm sure Mr. Johnson's BROTHER will have LOTS to say to him! Too bad Johnson put himself in the hospital before his brother got to him. We might not have another prison-mouth to feed.

This guy looks and acts like GREG AUSTIN too! I bet he is receiving the best medical attention the taxpayers can't afford. I guess he will have a speedy recovery so he can have a fast hearing where a low bond can be set and he can continue, as GREG AUSTIN STILL DOES TO THIS DATE, providing his services to little girls. Both of these guys need their nuts cut off and shoved down their throats.
