LYONS — The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of Evan P. Welcher, 27, of 5799 Jungle Road, Arcadia, following a grand jury indictment on a charge of first-degree rape, a class B felony.
The arrest stems from an incident in October 2012 when it is alleged that Welcher had sexual intercourse with a female who was unconscious at the time. Welcher was arraigned in Wayne County Court and remanded to jail in lieu of $100,000 or $200,000 insurance bond.
He will return to County Court at a later date to answer the charge.
