A South Toledo man accused of raping a woman was arrested Thursday following a brief pursuit with Toledo police, according to documents filed in Toledo Municipal Court.

Rockie Goodwin, 31, of Hiett Avenue, is charged with rape, a first-degree felony, and a misdemeanor offense of obstructing official business.

Mr. Goodwin is accused of punching a woman multiple times Oct. 28 and causing her face to swell, court records show, before raping her at knifepoint. 

Mr. Goodwin was apprehended Thursday afternoon after he fled a vehicle that had been pulled over in the 600 block of Oak Street, court records show. He was captured after a brief chase.

He was held Friday in the Lucas County jail pending arraignment Saturday in Toledo Municipal Court.
