A Burlington man was arrested on a warrant Friday afternoon for allegedly raping a 19-year-old Burlington woman in June.
Austin Michael Gonzalez, 19, was charged with third-degree sex abuse.
According to Burlington Police, the incident occurred early June 6 or late June 5. The woman reported the alleged rape right after it happened, telling police it started when she invited her friends to a party. She said Gonzalez was the only one who showed up, so the two started drinking alcohol and playing video games.
At one point, Gonzalez sat next to the woman and tried kissing her, pinning her down. She didn't want to kiss him, and refused to kiss back. Gonzalez then allegedly pushed her down, removed both of their pants, and had vaginal sex with her against her will, causing her pain. She was eventually able to get out from underneath him and got him to leave, reporting the incident shortly after.
