OCPD CHARGE MAN WITH ATTEMPTED RAPE

Henri awakened the victim, whose name is not being released.  The victim immediately attempted to stop the assault.  Henri then fled from the residence, but was later located by police in the area of North Division Street, where he was positively identified by the victim as the suspect of the assault.

Henri was arrested and charged with attempted second degree rape, first degree burglary, third degree burglary, third degree sex offense and second degree assault.  After being seen by an Ocean City District Court Commissioner, Henri was transferred to Worcester County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
