FRANKLIN, Tenn. -

A Williamson County realtor remains in jail on a $1 million bond after Franklin police charged him in connection with the rape of a woman he met on the Internet.

George McIntosh, 40, is charged with aggravated rape and kidnapping.

The woman told police McIntosh drugged her, gagged her and tied up her hands and feet.

She said he then sexually assaulted her at gunpoint.

Neighbors said McIntosh and the woman recently moved into an apartment together on Moher Boulevard in Franklin.

"It was a little unnerving to know what that was about," neighbor Jennifer Duke said.

Another neighbor called police Tuesday morning when they saw the woman with her wrists bound.  

"When officers arrived that witness had taken some care of the victim," Franklin Police Spokesman Lt. Charles Warner said. "When officers began speaking to victim we realized what we were looking at the woman was visibly upset and officers found definite signs of criminal activity.

The woman told police she met McIntosh on a dating Web site about a month ago and the two began dating.

She moved in with McIntosh shortly thereafter and that is when she said he attacked her.

"She did not expect in a million years to be in the situation she was in the night we were contacted," Warner said.

McIntosh is a Franklin realtor with Benchmark Realty.

According to his bio on his professional Facebook page, McIntosh specializes in residential, land, investment properties and rentals.

News 2 uncovered a previous conviction on McIntosh's record in 2008.

According to police records obtained by News 2 McIntosh's then live-in girlfriend called police after she said he flew into a rage inside her home when she broke up with him.

She told police he kicked a hole in the closet door, broke several dishes in the kitchen and threw her house keys hitting her in the face when she asked him to leave.

McIntosh was later arrested and convicted of domestic assault.

A judge retired the charges after McIntosh donated $100 to Bridges Domestic Violence Center in Williamson County.

More recently McIntosh was convicted of DUI in Shelby County following a June 2012 arrest.

According to court records in Shelby County, he spent 11 months in jail following his arrest.

Police will not release which dating Web site McIntosh met the victim met on about a month ago.

McIntosh is scheduled to appear in court September 10. At that hearing a judge could lower his bond from $1 million.
