Albemarle County police have arrested a Louisa County man on rape and abduction charges.
A woman escaped Henry Lee Jasper, 32 , in an incident that took place at about 3 p.m. Sunday in the 1600 block of Fifth Street in Albemarle, police said. The woman was near her home, and people who were outside at the time called authorities, said county police spokeswoman Carter Johnson. The victim did not know her attacker, police said.
Police arrested Jasper a short time later, authorities said. He was being held without bond Monday in the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail, authorities said.
