A Fort Wayne man is accused of beating a woman and threatening to rape her.
Jermaine Sanders, 36, was charged Friday with misdemeanor battery and two felonies: criminal deviate conduct and marijuana possession.
According to court documents, Sanders confronted the woman early Sept. 1 and started punching her. She ran away, but he caught her and continued hitting her until she nearly lost consciousness, court documents said.
Sanders ripped off the womans pants and underwear and threatened to rape her. She managed to get away, and city police found her nude from the waist down, court documents stated.
In an interview with police, Sanders admitted to taking off the womans clothing and said he was upset with her because of a previous robbery he thought she was responsible for, court documents said.
Sanders, of the 100 block of West Creighton Avenue, posted a $13,250 bond to be released from custody Friday.
