A 23-year-old man described as being homeless said he was walking on Powell Road at about 4 a.m. Monday when a 45-year-old Georgetown man started following him and asking questions.
The victim said when he told the man he was homeless and looking for work, the man offered to let him be his roommate and said he would help him find a job.
The victim said he agreed and when they arrived at the man’s home, they sat on the couch talking and drinking beer until they both fell asleep.
The victim said he woke up when the suspect started sexually assaulting him.
He said he told the man he did not want to engage in that type of activity and he gathered his clothing and left the house.
He said he walked down the road hoping he would see a deputy but after a while, when no officer was seen, he went to the home of the suspect’s neighbor and asked them for help.
The man was taken to the hospital where a rape test was conducted.
The investigation is continuing.

Shirtless man arrested at hospital

Police arrested a shirtless 21-year-old Andrews area man for causing a disturbance at Georgetown Memorial Hospital.

The man was reportedly in the triage unit kicking a door and cursing.
By the time police arrived he was in the parking lot with his shirt off.
He was charged with disorderly conduct.
