Man accused of raping woman on Monroe Road

A 21-year-old man is accused of trying to rape a woman Sunday night near an apartment complex on Monroe Road, police say.

Christian Pinzon-Reyes was arrested after police say they got an excellent description of the suspect from witnesses. He is charged with second-degree forcible rape, assault on a female, and first-degree kidnapping.

The alleged attack was reported about 9:45 p.m. in the 6400 block of Monroe Road, southeast of Idlewild Road.

Police say a woman told them she was walking in the area when a man approached and tried to start a conversation. The woman said she refused to talk and walked toward an open area in an apartment complex.

According to the woman, the man followed her and assaulted her. Neighbors heard her cries, called police, and came to help. According to officers, the man ran off, but officers found him a short time later.
