A Columbus man is behind bars this morning following his arrest in connection with an attempted rape.
Leo Herbert Posey, 60, of 3150 Plateau Drive, Lot 555, was charged early this morning with false imprisonment, aggravated assault, criminal attempt rape and aggravated sodomy.
Police Lt. Steve Cox said the charges stem from an incident that occurred between midnight and 1:50 a.m. at Posey's residence.
The victim, a woman in her 40s and acquaintance of the accused, reported to police that she had gone to Posey's house, but when she attempted to leave he refused to let her go. That's when the alleged attack took place, Cox said.
Posey is in the Muscogee County Jail awaiting his Recorder's Court hearing.
