A man is accused of breaking into a woman's home, threatening her, and raping her.

According to the police report, the victim said a man broke into her home through a back window while she was asleep on the couch on July 28. The man had a knife and demanded money.

The victim told him she didn't have any money, at which point he told her to take off her clothes. He raped her, then escaped out of the same window he entered through.

Police found a fingerprint on the window and matched it to that of William Morris, 24.

On August 2, the victim identified Morris from a photo lineup. At the time, detectives were unable to find Morris.

He was later arrested and charged with aggravated burglary and aggravated rape.
