A 53 years old Nigerian man with the name Nnamdi Godson Nwankwo, who worked at a group home run by his wife,in Raleigh, North Carolina was arrested last month after he allegedly raped a 47-year-old mentally challenged woman who lives there.
He was arrested on Merrell Drive in Raleigh at about 10 a.m. on April 5th after the incident happened a day earlier and charged for second-degree forcible rape and sexual activity.
Two officers on patrol along Merrell Drive in East Raleigh said they saw a suspicious car in a secluded area at about 10 am on the day of the incident. When they went to check, they found Nwankwo in the car with the woman.
Police say the two of them were not fully clothed and immediately noticed that the female victim had a possible cognitive impairment.
According to the warrant of arrest, the woman’s mental capacity did not give her the ability to provide consent.
The suspect is being held in the Wake County jail under a $1.5 million bond.
