Police today arrested Terry Rawls, one of the men accused in the mob-beating of a man in the city’s Pleasant Valley community.

Rawls, 44, declined to comment as police led him to a squad car to take him to Mobile County Metro Jail on a first-degree assault charge.

Mobile police spokesman Cpl. Christopher Levy said authorities made contact with Rawls Tuesday night and that he turned himself in today. Levy said 2 to 3 additional arrests are possible. Chad Tucker, a spokesman for the Mobile County District Attorney’s Office, said no additional warrants have been issued.

Rawls has a lengthy criminal history, including a previous conviction for first-degree assault, according to court records.
