A New Jersey man was arrested and charged with kidnapping and aggravated sexual assault, after Tomball police say he grabbed a woman from her place of work, took her back to his motel room and raped her, March 21.
Jesse Dains, 54, of Newton, N.J., was arrested at the Economy Inn & Suites, on Tomball Parkway, after the victim escaped his room and called police.
Police said that the victim worked at a local bar, where Dains was a customer. They said after the bar was empty, Dains grabbed the woman and forced her to drive him to his motel. Once in the room Dains allegedly beat and sexually assaulted the woman.
Police said that the woman was able to escape, after Daines passed out in the room. She ran to the front desk of the hotel, where the clerk then called 911.
"Upon arrival responding officers located a female victim who outwardly displayed signs of physical and emotional trauma and abuse," a Tomball Police Department press release stated.
The victim told police that Dains was still inside the room, and officers arrested him without incident. He was transported to the Tomball Police Department and questioned. He was later charged with the two felony counts.
Detectives said that Dains visits Tomball on business several times a year and that it appears he frequents that bar when in town.
Bond was set at $30,000 per charge and Dains was transferred to the Harris County Jail. He is set for arraignment in Harris County District Court 262 for April 26.
