A Reynoldsburg man has been charged with two counts of rape stemming from an alleged assault of a woman at an Upper Arlington home last month.
Alusine M. Bangura, 27, of Pine Tree Lane in Reynoldsburg, was being held in the Franklin County jail on Jackson Pike as of July 2.
According to Franklin County Common Pleas Court records, Bangura's next court date has not been set. He was indicted June 14 on two first-degree felony charges of rape stemming from the incident, which Upper Arlington police reports show occurred around 1:30 a.m. June 2 at a home on Nottingham Road.
Two days later, the woman told police she was raped by Bangura, whom she identified as an acquaintance.
An affidavit filed in Franklin County Municipal Court by the Upper Arlington Police Division stated the woman had friends over the night of the alleged incident and Bangura lingered after other guests left.
According to the court records, she told police she told Bangura she was uncomfortable being alone with him and that she was drifting in and out of sleep on her couch when Bangura told her he was leaving.
According to the affidavit, the woman said she heard her front door open and close, but then she woke up sometime later to find Bangura on top of her.
The complaint filed against Bangura in municipal court stated he performed two sex acts on the woman "after repeated pleas from (her) to stop."
Bangura pleaded not guilty to both rape charges at a June 18 arraignment. Judge Michael Holbrook set a $5,000 "reporting recognizance" bond.
If released from jail, Bangura would be prohibited from having any contact with the woman, would have to stay at least 500 feet away from any address listed in his indictment and would be required to submit to drug and alcohol screening.
Bangura did not appear to have any previous criminal record, according to Franklin County court databases.
