SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Sioux Falls police say they arrested a man who allegedly raped a woman at knifepoint and then tried to bind and gag the woman and her female roommate.
Police say both women and the 34-year-old man suffered minor cuts during a struggle that ensued.
Authorities say the man followed the 26-year-old woman into her residence shortly after midnight and assaulted her. He fled after the woman's 20-year-old roommate returned home and the two women fought him and screamed for help.
Police who responded to a report of another residence break-in about 2 a.m. Thursday arrested the man after a short foot chase. He was arrested on several charges including rape and kidnapping.
