Guernsey County officials confirm a Powhatan Point man is in the Guernsey County Jail, charged with first degree felony rape.
They say 59-year-old Lawrence Alan Hartley is held under $200,000 bond.
Lt. Sam Williams of the Guernsey County Sheriff’s Department says a woman who lives at Lake Seneca Resorts had fallen asleep before locking her door Saturday night.
At 3:30 a.m. Sunday, she reportedly awoke when a stranger entered her cabin and forcibly raped her.
Lt. Williams said the woman said she saw the man earlier that evening, visiting her neighbors.
She didn’t meet the man or speak to him, but recognized her assailant as the man she had seen earlier.
Lt. Williams said the man left her cabin after the rape, and she immediately called 911.
He was found, still at a neighboring camp site.
