Wilton Man Accused Of Kidnapping, Raping Woman
A Wilton man is accused of tying up a local woman, raping her, and using a knife on her.
Jason Baker Sr., 44, is charged with gross sexual assault and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, as well as kidnapping. WGME-TV says police learned of the attack Saturday night, when they received a report of a nude woman running down the road with her hands tied behind her back. The woman ran to a neighbor's house and told them she had been raped. Her hands were tied with rope and duct tape and there were small cuts, where she told police that Baker had allegedly run a knife down her chest.
The victim told police that Baker had allegedly knocked her unconscious and then tied her up. She said he was raping her when she finally regained consciousness. She estimated that she was bound for up to five hours, before the man left the house and she was able to run for help.
Baker was taken to the Franklin County Detention Center in Framington, where bail was set at $15,000 cash or $500 cash with a supervised release agreement. If convicted, the kidnapping charge carries a penalty of up to 30 years in prison, while the gross sexual assault and aggravated assault charges could earn him up to 10 years in prison.
