A man from Rayland, Ohio, has been arrested on rape charges.

U.S. Marshal Chad Simpson said Brandon Billingsley was arrested for rape after the Wells Township Police Department investigated the incident.

Officials had to force their way into Billingsley's home after they obtained a warrant for his arrest, and reportedly found him hiding in the shower.

Simpson said authorities acted quickly in this situation.

"The warrant was issued on the 13," he said. "The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department notified me and requested some assistance and yesterday we jumped right on due to the fact of the severity of the case being rape."

Billingsley was arrested without incident and was transported to the Jefferson County Jail.
