Reserve officer accused of raping ex-girlfriend
ST. CHARLES (AP) - A 23-year-old man who works as a reserve police officer in the St. Louis suburb of Pine Lawn is facing charges for allegedly breaking into his ex-girlfriend's apartment and raping her.
Rico Frazier was arrested Wednesday and charged with burglary, rape, felonious restraint and two counts of sodomy. He is jailed on $200,000 cash-only bond, and does not have a listed attorney.
A 22-year-old Lindenwood University student reported the attack in May, at her apartment about two miles from the St. Charles campus. Frazier and the woman were involved in a relationship until October.
Police say the suspect used a rock to smash through a sliding glass door while the woman was sleeping, then sprayed her in the face with law enforcement-grade pepper spray, and sexually assaulted her.
