A 38 year old John R. Rice Boulevard man has been named as a suspect in a rape case.
Evidently, the alleged crime was reported at The Reserve at Harpers Point Apartments in Murfreesboro on Sunday (2/11/19).
The 41 year old victim told authorities that she was in her bedroom getting dressed when she was forcibly raped by the suspect. The incident reportedly took place this past September. She went on to tell police that this had occurred before. She said previously, it happened a few weeks prior while she was asleep in her bedroom.
The woman said that she tried to get an order of protection against the suspect, but was told that could not happen because it happened months prior to her reporting it.
The case is now in the hands of the Special Victims Unit. At this point, the 38 year old suspect who is reportedly the victims roommate, has not been arrested.
