In early July, investigators with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office began investigating a complaint of rape. According to the victim, 28-year-old Danial Aryanpour, of Hazelwood, came to her residence in Lincoln County and forced her to have sexual intercourse.
Text messages sent from Danial Aryanpour to the victim the next day said he was sorry and he acknowledged she did not want sexual intercourse.
Detectives questioned Aryanpour who admitted to having sexual contact with the victim and said it was consensual. When confronted with the text messaged he invoked his right to legal counsel.
Prosecutors charged Aryanpour with Second Degree Rape and he is currently housed in the Lincoln County Jail. Honorable Judge Greg Allsberry did not set a bond.
