A Dededo man is arrested over the weekend accused of kidnapping and raping a 29-year-old woman known to him. The Guam Police Department's Domestic Assault Response Team (DART) was activated Saturday morning following a reported kidnapping and rape to the Dededo Precinct.

Within 24 hours, the suspect was located and apprehended in the Dededo Mall parking lot.

41-year-old Valantino Usan was arrested on offenses of 1st Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct, 2nd Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct Kidnapping, Felonious Restraint, and Assault with Intent to Commit Criminal Sexual Conduct. He was later transported to the Guam Detention Facility in Hagatna where he was booked and confined.

According to police spokesperson Officer AJ Balajadia, the victim was at her boyfriend's relative's home in Chalan Pago when she alleges the suspect forced her into his car and took her to a secluded area where he raped and assaulted her. The woman sustained visible injuries and was treated at Guam Memorial Hospital before being transported to healing hearts for a forensic exam.

Usan is scheduled to be magistrated on Tuesday before Judge Alberto Tolentino.
