BEDFORD -- Bedford Police and the U.S. Marshals Violent Fugitive Task Force have arrested a man accused of an Aug. 24 rape at gunpoint.
Police say that just before 4 a.m. Sunday, a woman called the Bedford Police Department to report that she had just been raped by a man at gunpoint.
She said she had been walking northbound on Warrensville Center Road just past the Bedford Police Department when a man ran up behind her sticking a gun to her head.
He forced the victim to a grassy area off the roadway where he proceeded to sexually assault and rob the victim of $300.
By Monday, Bedford Detectives obtained a possible suspect -- Montana Hudson, 23 -- from E.141st Street in Cleveland. The victim positively identified Montana Hudson as the man who raped and robbed her.
On Tuesday, Bedford Police, along with the U.S. Marshal's Violent Fugitive Task Force, set out to arrest Hudson.
At approximately 3 p.m., Hudson was arrested without incident walking near an apartment complex in Warrensville Heights.
Bedford Police Detectives interviewed him and Hudson subsequently admitted to the sexual assault.
The gun used in the crime was recovered in a nearby home. Hudson remains in Bedford City Jail on a $500,000 bond and is expected to be transferred to Cuyahoga County Jail today.
Hudson was charged with rape, a first-degree felony, and is expected to be indicted on robbery and kidnapping charges as well.
