Del. man charged with raping same woman 9 times over 2-year period


NEW CASTLE, Delaware — Delaware State Police have arrested a man they say raped the same woman nine times in 2010 and 2011.

Thirty-five-year-old Jorge Arellano of New Castle was arrested Monday during a traffic stop. He has been charged with nine counts of rape and numerous other offenses. He is being held on $1.7 million cash bail.

Troopers say Arellano confronted the woman at gunpoint in a Wilmington parking lot in January 2013. Officers say he forced the woman into his car and touched her inappropriately while threatening her.

Police say while investigating that alleged crime, troopers learned of other incidents involving the same woman.
