Port Chester police are investigating an incident at a Poningo Street home, where a man living with friends has been accused of rape.
A 31-year-old man has been charged with first-degree rape in connection with an incident at about 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday. He is being held in the Westchester County Jail in Valhalla without bail pending a hearing in Port Chester Village Court.
Police said the man, who is not identified because of the ongoing investigation, is accused of attacking a 25-year-old woman as she came out of the bathroom of the apartment where they were both living. Police said the man contends that he and the woman had consensual sex.
The incident was reported to police by the woman's husband.
