Man Raped Woman He Met On Craigslist

A North Carolina man has been charged with posing as a police officer and raping a South Carolina woman he met on Craigslist.

Multiple media outlets reported Saturday that 42-year-old Wayne Ford of Charlotte was arrested this week and charged with first-degree rape, kidnapping, sex offense, armed robbery and impersonating a police officer.

Police say a 21-year-old South Carolina woman said she gave her hotel room number to a man answering an ad she posted on Craigslist. The woman said Ford went to her hotel room early Tuesday, showed her a badge and a handgun and then raped and robbed her.

Police would not say what the woman's ad said.

Ford was listed as a jail inmate Saturday. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.
