A Greenwood man was arrested Thursday following reports of a rape last year.

Jason Newson, 34, of 217 Kathy Hill Road, was charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct in connection with the incident.

According to a Greenwood police report, the victim reported the alleged attack Oct. 24, 2013, one day after she said a suspect named “J” forced his way into her apartment, beat and forced her to have vaginal intercourse with her. The incident took place between 9-11 p.m. at a Blyth Avenue apartment complex. Officers noted her right eye was swollen shut, and several bruises to her left forearm.
