Charlestown man charged with kidnapping, rape due back in court

BOSTON (WHDH) - A Charlestown man accused of kidnapping and raping a 23-year-old woman is expected back in court on Wednesday.

Victor Pena, 38, was indicted in March on one count of kidnapping and 10 counts of aggravated rape for allegedly holding the Jamaica Plain woman against her will and sexually assaulting her at his Walford Way residence in January, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office.

Pena was arrested on Jan. 22 at the Bunker Hill housing complex after authorities found the missing woman in his apartment.

The 23-year-old hadn’t been seen since she left Hennessy’s Bar on Jan. 19.
