A North Toledo man was arraigned yesterday after police said he unlawfully entered a nearby woman s home and raped her Sunday morning.
Rico Reed, 25, of 313 East Park St., was held in the Lucas County jail last night in lieu of $200,000 bond after arraignment in Toledo Municipal Court on one count each of rape and aggravated burglary.
The 22-year-old victim was loading items into her car in the 300 block of East Streicher Street about 6:40 a.m. Sunday when a man she recognized from her neighborhood approached and asked her if a male friend of hers was there, investigators said.
When the woman said no, the suspect walked into the house uninvited, detectives said, forced her to the floor and raped her. Mr. Reed was arrested at his home a few hours later. The victim was treated at St. Anne Mercy Hospital.
