BEDFORD, OH (WOIO) - Bedford Police have taken a Cleveland man into custody for an incident involving kidnapping, rape and robbery.
The female victim contacted law enforcement after she says she was attacked in the overnight hours of Sunday, August 24, at around 3:45 a.m.
She told police she had just been raped by a male at gunpoint while she was walking northbound on Warrensville Center Rd., just past the Bedford Police Department.
According to the victim, the suspect ran up behind her and put a gun to her head, forcing her into a grassy area off the side of the road.
There, she said he raped and robbed her of $300.
On Monday, August 25, the victim positively identified 23-year-old Montana Hudson as her assailant during a review of mug shots with Bedford Police.
The next day, officers with the assistance of the U.S. Marshal's Violent Fugitive Task Force spotted Hudson walking near an apartment complex in Warrensville Heights around 3 p.m.
Hudson admitted to the crimes soon after his arrest.
The gun involved was recovered in a nearby home.
Hudson remains in the Bedford City Jail on a $500,000 bond and is expected to be transferred to Cuyahoga County Jail on Friday, August 29.
Hudson was charged with rape, a first degree felony and is expected to be indicted on robbery and kidnapping charges as well.
