Nevada City Police have arrested a man for raping an unconscious victim. Police Lieutenant Loren Gage says 44 year old Nicholas Bauer of Nevada City was taken into custody after Officers received information of a disturbance on the trail between Nimrod and Sacramento Street on Sunday. Lieutenant Gage says they found the unconscious woman lying on the trail.
“Officers responded and located a female unconscious, partially dressed, and after a considerable time, were able to actually get her conscious to where she somewhat knew what was going on. Through her statements and with witness statements, she had had sexual contact with another male. Due to the fact that she was under the influence, was unaware that that contact had taken place, he was arrested.”
Bauer was taken into custody without incident. The victim received medical treatment. The Lieutenant says the assistance of witnesses in this case has greatly helped the Police Department’s Investigation.
