Norwich man charged with raping former girlfriend

NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) — A Norwich man is accused of stabbing and raping a former girlfriend in an attack that police say was stopped by bystanders.

The Norwich Bulletin reports 43-year-old Raymond Holloway was arraigned Monday in New London Superior Court on numerous charges including first-degree sexual assault.

Police say Holloway attacked the woman in her home on May 27 after an argument. They say the victim’s daughter, her daughter’s friend and a neighbor heard her screaming for help.

Police say the friend pulled an air conditioning unit from a window, climbed in, and stuck Holloway in the head with a steel pan from the kitchen. Meanwhile, the neighbor kicked in the front door, allowing the victim to flee.

Police say the woman suffered injuries including a stab wound to the chest.
