Man Arrested After Home Invasion Robbery And Rape

OMAHA- The Sarpy County Sheriff’s office say a man wanted in the armed home invasion robbery and rape of a woman just southwest of Omaha has been arrested.

The 52-year-old man is suspected in the late Wednesday night assault. Officials have said he may also be linked to other assaults in the Omaha area. The woman in Wednesday night’s attack told investigators she was asleep in her home when a masked man entered her house and raped her at gunpoint before leaving with money. Police launched a manhunt after tips from the public and seized the suspect’s empty vehicle Friday morning.

In it, investigators say they found a portable police scanner and items linked to assaults in Omaha.
