Columbus police investigate separate rape reports

Columbus police were investigating reports of two rapes over the weekend.

One allegedly happened Saturday night at an apartment in north Columbus. A 43-year-old woman said she was raped by a friend of hers in his mid to late 40s. She was taken to St. Francis Hospital and listed in stable condition.

Police received a second report of a rape Sunday when they responded to a domestic dispute in the 3200 block of 10th Street. A 51-year-old woman told an officer her roommate was making her move out "without proper notification."

The woman then mentioned a sexual assault that happened about a week ago. No suspects were listed in that report.

Call 706-653-3400 to report information to police.
