Police investigate rape allegation

COEUR d'ALENE - A man is under suspicion of raping a woman in Coeur d'Alene.

According to a police press release, Coeur d'Alene Police responded to a reported stabbing in the 100 block of Appleway Avenue late Monday.

"The stabbing was unfounded, but the investigation found that a battery did occur," police said.

The individuals involved did not want to pursue charges at that time, police said.

However, one of the females involved told police that she had been raped in the woods north of Target on Canfield Avenue in Coeur d'Alene days prior.

The female was transported to Kootenai Medical Center for medical treatment, police said.

A man had been detained on scene and was interviewed by police regarding his involvement with the rape.

"The male that was detained is the sole suspect at this time and the Coeur d'Alene Police are not looking for any other suspects," the release said.

There have been no arrests and an investigation continues.
