A New York man has been arrested for the August rape of a local woman.
U.S. Marshals arrested Hayden Ian Lewis, 48, in New York for the August 16 incident and charged him with false imprisonment, rape and aggravated assault.
Lewis was extradited back to Conyers last week and remains detained in Rockdale County jail.
According to the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office, a Conyers resident reported Lewis had asked her to borrow her car and when she refused he dragged her down steps, raped her and then locked her in her basement.
The victim told authorities that Lewis, who was an acquaintance of the victim, had asked her for sex and when she refused he tried to choke her.
