Bond was set at $250,000 on Thursday for a Holland man accused of threatening to kill a central Toledo woman if she didn’t have sex with him.
Dale Painter, 31, is charged with rape, a first-degree felony.
The woman allowed Mr. Painter to stay at her East Woodruff Avenue home because he told her he had nowhere else to stay, court records show.
While at the woman’s home Wednesday, Mr. Painter told her, “I’m gonna kill you before I leave,” according to an affidavit filed in Toledo Municipal Court.
Out of fear of being physically attacked, the woman complied with Mr. Painter’s request for sex.
Toledo police arrested Mr. Painter Wednesday.
