A Maryville man turned himself in to Georgetown police Wednesday, five days after being accused of rape.
Pablo Alberto Vargas, 23, had been wanted by police since the alleged incident.
According to a police report, officers responded to the Maryville home at about 8:50 a.m. Friday and met the woman who said the incident happened the previous day.
The woman said she went to bed at about 8:45 p.m., about two hours after Vargas.
She said she told Vargas to stop touching her several times but his advances continued. The woman says she was raped by Vargas.
She also said she was held against her will during the ordeal.
She said she was not able to call for help until Vargas went to work. The woman said she had to walk to the home of a friend to call because Vargas took her phone and car keys.
Vargas, charged with criminal sexual conduct in the first degree and kidnapping has been released from jail under a $45,000 bond.
