A Springs man is facing a charge of rape in the third degree after an incident that allegedly took place early morning June 1.
According to the police, Edwin Gustavo Yepez-Prado, 31, was highly intoxicated when he entered a room belonging to a woman he was acquainted with at his Three Mile Harbor address. He climbed into the sleeping woman’s bed and began having sex with her, waking her up. The alleged victim began yelling, the police said, and Yepez-Prado left the room.
Besides the rape charge, he is also facing a burglary charge, for allegedly trespassing with the intent to commit a crime. Police confiscated his clothing, apparently for forensic evidence testing.
Bail was set June 2 at $50,000.
Yepez-Prado remained in custody in county jail as of Monday morning.
