FORT DUCHESNE MAN ACCUSED OF RAPING WOMAN AT HIS HOME

A Fort Duchesne man has been charged with raping a Fort Duchesne woman Aug. 14.

According to BIA Police Lt. Ed Reynolds, the 22-year-old man is accused of raping a 25-year-old woman after she agreed to give him a ride home from a Uintah County bar about 10:30 p.m. Once at his home, the suspect allegedly took the woman's car keys, assaulted her and took her behind his home where he raped her."He wanted a ride home and she was nice enough to give him one," Reynolds said, "but it turned out to be a real big mistake for her."

Roosevelt police apprehended the man in a field shortly afterward.
