Alpharetta police have arrested a man for allegedly raping a woman after using a stun gun to subdue his victim.
The incident occurred Monday at an apartment complex in the north Fulton County city, Alpharetta police spokesman George Gordon said.
Gordon said the 23-year-old victim told police that her attacker shocked her with a stun gun, then used duct tape to tie up her arms and legs before raping her.
After the attack, the suspect put the woman in the trunk of his car and drove around for about two hours before releasing her. Gordon said the victim told investigators that before being released, the man pointed a handgun at her and told her he would kill her if she told anyone.
On Thursday, police arrested Dean Martin Fontenelle, and charged him with rape, kidnapping, aggravated assault and false imprisonment.
Gordon said detectives believe that Fontenelle, 32, "has had some type of relationship with the victim's roommate in the past."
Once Fontenelle was identified as a suspect, detectives tracked him to an extended-stay motel in neighboring Roswell. He was arrested Thursday after a Roswell police tactical squad forced their way into his room, Gordon said.
