A man with a sex offender history has been arrested in what police are calling a multi-county rape investigation.

The Flagler and Volusia County Sheriff's will hold a press conference Wednesday afternoon to discuss the arrested of Obtravies Watkins, 34.

Watkins was arrested on charges of kidnapping and sexual battery for an attack that took place Monday, according to Volusia County Jail records.

Watkins is a registered sex offender on four counts out of Flagler County, including traveling to meet a minor for sex and using the internet to solicit a child for sex.

He was reportedly a transient living in Ormond Beach at the time of his arrest.
