MANKATO — A Mankato man is accused of raping a woman after she was drugged.
Damarcus Deontay Holloway, 24, was charged with felony criminal sexual conduct Wednesday in Blue Earth County District Court.
A woman told authorities she believed Holloway raped her while she was unconscious in May 2020.
The woman said she felt tired after drinking a glass of soda Holloway had given to her, according to a court complaint.
She passed out and woke up to find Holloway was touching her. She passed out again and awoke to Holloway lying next to her on a mattress he had moved into a living room.
Holloway told police they had consensual sex that the woman initiated.
A sample of the woman’s blood was sent to a Bureau of Criminal Apprehension lab and it showed she had a tranquilizer in her system.
