CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Bond was denied Monday morning for a 38-year-old man arrested in connection with an alleged rape in downtown Charleston over the weekend. 

Charleston police say Dewayne Travis Brown, of Adams Run, was taken into custody Sunday night and charged with criminal sexual conduct first degree, kidnapping, and burglary first degree.

An incident report states police responded to reports of a forcible rape on Saturday around 8:18 a.m. The victim told police the incident occurred at her home on Ashton Street. 

According to an affidavit, Brown broke into the victim's home around 3 a.m. while she was asleep in her, entered her bedroom, and covered her face with a blanket and put his hands over her mouth. 

The victim attempted to run away, but court records state Brown stopped her before she could exit. Investigators say the victim was able to rip off a cloth that was covering Brown's face, revealing his identity. 

Court records state Brown then forced the victim back to her bed and raped her. He left the victim's home around 7 a.m.

Brown was denied bond on all charges Monday morning. He is being held at the Charleston County Detention Center. 

The investigation is ongoing.
