JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Jonesboro man posted bond Monday afternoon after being charged with raping and beating a woman.

According to an incident report with the Jonesboro Police Department, a woman contacted them around 10 o'clock Friday morning about an incident that happened around 2 a.m. that same day.

The woman told police that she was asleep in bed when Quentin Rose came into her apartment and began asking her questions. Rose, who was not a stranger to the woman, had allegedly just come home from a local bar.

The woman told police that when Rose started asking her questions, she got nervous and started crying. She told police that's when Rose ripped her shirt off, which was the only piece of clothing she had on at the time.

The woman said Rose then dragged her through the home by her arms and legs and locked her outside of the home. The woman said she tried to get back inside since she was naked and didn't have her phone or keys on her.

Rose then allegedly opened the door to let her inside and began hitting her in the face. The woman told police Rose demanded she perform oral sex on him and any time she stopped, he "began striking her repeatedly with a belt."

Police noted multiple bruises on the woman's face and arms. A later search of the home turned up a t-shirt that had been ripped in half.

An arrest warrant was issued for Rose.

Police located him later that day at an apartment on Latourette Drive. He was taken into custody without incident and was charged with rape, kidnapping and domestic battering.

Rose appeared in court Monday and posted bail for $50,000. A judge also issued a no-contact order with Rose's alleged victim.
