EASTON, Md. — A Dorchester County man was arrested for an alleged sexual assault in early October.

Maryland State Police said a woman told investigators that 43-year-old Jason Willis raped her at his home on Russell Road in Hurlock.

With the request of a search warrant, State Troopers found Willis at his home and arrested him without incident. He is charged with first degree rape, second degree rape, third degree sex offense, fourth degree sex offense, first degree assault, second degree assault, perverted practice and reckless endangerment.

Willis was taken to the hospital due to a matter unrelated to the arrest. He will be taken before a District Court Commissioner upon his release.

The incident is still under investigation and further charges may be forthcoming.

Anyone with information about this or any other assault that may have involved this suspect is urged to contact lead investigator TFC K. Plutschak at (410) 819-4782.
