Rusty Rudd, 26, of Portland will remain in the custody of the Callaway County Jail on no bond.
On the morning of March 23, Callaway County Sheriffs deputies responded to a domestic disturbance/sexual assault at a home near Portland. The victim was found at the home, was taken to a Columbia hospital, where they were treated and later released.
At the time, Rudd was identified as the suspect, but he fled the scene. Thursday morning, deputies found Rudd and arrested him before being taken to the Callaway County Jail.
