GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Another criminal sexual conduct charge has been filed against a man accused of sexually assaulting a woman as she walked in Grand Rapids.
Martae Rose now faces a count of second-degree CSC with a weapon used. That’s in addition to the charges he already faced: first-degree CSC with a weapon, unlawful imprisonment, assault with intent to rob while armed, and being a second-time habitual offender.
On the evening of Oct. 16, Rose allegedly grabbed a woman as she walked in the area of Euclid Avenue and Hall Street SE, put a gun to her head and threatened to kill her. He allegedly demanded money, but the woman didn’t have any. Police say Rose then made the woman walk to a secluded area and raped her. He allegedly threatened to kill her again before leaving.
Rose, 21, was identified as the attacker using DNA evidence and arrested a couple of weeks after the attack.
Monday, Rose was bound over the stand trial on all five charges he now faces.
