Portage Man Arrested for Rape in Ft. Wayne Hotel


After a four month investigation, a Portage man is behind bars on a felony rape charge.


Indiana State Police say 28-year-old Jared Smith was arrested Thursday for the alleged rape of a 22-year-old Indianapolis woman at a Fort Wayne hotel in June.  Investigators say Smith allegedly entered the woman's unlocked hotel room, climbed into her bed and had sex with her while she was sleeping.

Smith allegedly stopped and left after the woman, who police say was an acquaintance, woke up.  Smith was in Fort Wayne for a military obligation with the Indiana National Guard.

Smith was taken to the Allen County Jail on $10,000 bond.
