FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – A Fayetteville man is behind bars after police say he raped a woman while she slept.
Dylan J. May, 28, was arrested after turning himself over to police a couple weeks after the rape took place, according to a preliminary report.
On Aug. 9 at approximately 3:50 a.m., Fayetteville police responded to the 1800 block of North Gregg Avenue for a reported rape. The female victim told police that she had been raped by May, the report states.
The victim told police that May and her boyfriend were drinking wine and playing video games after getting off work earlier that evening. The victim had spent some time with them, but then she said she decided to upstairs to her bedroom while they stayed downstairs, according to the report.
After she fell asleep, she woke up to what she thought was her boyfriend performing a sex act on her. After several minutes, the victim realized that it was not her boyfriend performing the sex act; it was May, the report states.
She screamed at him and tried immediately to pull away, and he grabbed her arm asking if she was okay, according to the report.
The victim told May to get out, and he went downstairs. The victim chased after him, trying to stop him from leaving before she could get her boyfriend’s attention and call the police, the report states.
May pushed past the victim and fled, according to the report.
Police attempted multiple times to make contact with May at his residence and via phone, but he refused to contact them back, the report states.
On Aug. 21, he came by the Fayetteville Police Department voluntarily. He declined to speak to investigators concerning the accusation, and he was placed under arrest.
He was booked into the Washington County Detention Center at 7:56 p.m. on Aug. 21 and faces a charge of rape.
His first hearing is scheduled for Aug. 25.
