GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Neighbors on 25th Street in Gulfport expressed relief today now that a rape suspect is in custody. Deltber Keyes, 44, had his initial court appearance this morning.

Keyes is accused of raping a 78-year-old woman right before midnight Sunday. He's also charged with kidnapping and robbery.

Several neighbors said they've seen Keyes walking up and down the street before and were surprised to learn that he was living so close to them.

Trang Pham Bui will have more reaction from neighbors later tonight. Look for her story on WLOX News and WLOX.com.
