LaVerkin –A man was arrested Wednesday for allegedly raping his ex-girlfriend last week at his LaVerkin home.
According to a probable cause statement, Brad Brooke, 38, of LaVerkin, had picked up his ex-girlfriend and brought her back to his home so she could collect her belongings.
Once there, Brooke allegedly proceeded to force himself upon her.
The victim said her cell phone battery had died, so she was unable to call for help and could not leave Brooke’s home. The victim said she was raped two more times before her mother showed up at the residence two days later to make sure that she was okay.
LaVerkin Police Detective Travis Romney wrote in the statement that Brooke admitted to raping the victim, but said it was only one time. According to the statement, Brooke “stated that he had too much wine and had never experienced the intoxicating effects from that drink (before).”
Brooke has been arrested and charged with first-degree rape and is being held at the Washington County Jail. Bail has been set at $20,000.
