A Pembroke man is due in Plymouth District Court for arraignment Monday after he was arrested Saturday on charges of aggravated rape and kidnapping after driving a woman around in his vehicle against her will and then allegedly raping her in a wooded section of Hanson.
Police say Anthony Vega offered a ride to the victim, a 34-year-old woman, who was able to escape and eventually got a ride to the Hanover Police station. She was taken to the hospital for treatment of undisclosed injuries.
She was able to tell detectives in Pembroke and Hanover the name of her attacker and his license plate number, which she had written on her hand before she escaped.
Vega was arrested at a hospital in Brockton where he was being treated for an unspecified illness.
