CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Prosecutors say Channel 5 sports anchor, Terry Brooks has been indicted for rape and kidnapping.

The indictment says Brooks sexually assaulted a woman at a home in South Euclid last September.

Cuyahoga County prosecutors say a 21-year-old female went to Jack's Sports Bar in South Euclid with Terry Brooks.

Prosecutors say instead of taking her home, Brooks, 32, took her to his residence in South Euclid. He raped her and dropped her back off at Jack's Sports Bar to get her car.

South Euclid Police began an investigation in January 2010, when the rape was reported. 

WEWS General Manager Sam Rosenwasser released the following statement:

"We learned late on Tuesday of the Cuyahoga County prosecutor's interest in legal action surrounding the alleged activity of Terry Brooks. Any hint of improper conduct by our employees is taken very seriously by the station and its management team. We will cooperate fully and completely with all investigating authorities in the interest of a resolution that is fair and just for all parties involved. At this time, we have placed Terry Brooks on a leave of absence until the facts are determined and we can evaluate his future with the station."
