He's accused of raping then robbing a woman who was walking home from work.

Late last month, 18-year-old Jefta Moses allegedly followed the victim, asking her for a lighter, before telling her he liked and loved her.

He then allegedly dragged her into the edge of the jungle where he raped her.

When the victim tried to leave, he demanded sex again and stole the 120-dollars in her purse.

Court documents state she was able to run away and flag down a passing car for help.

When asked to describe her rapist, she recalled he had a rat tail haircut and a tribal tattoo on his arm.

Police encountered Moses while investigating a similar sexual conduct incident in the area.

The victim was also able to identify Moses in a photo lineup.

He's charged with two counts of criminal sexual conduct as a first degree felony and theft as a misdemeanor.
