JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A Jonesboro man was in court Wednesday after a woman told police he raped her at gunpoint.

Police were called to the St. Bernards Medical Center Emergency Room Monday in reference to a rape.

A woman said she and three other people were at a house on East Allen Street when two unknown men entered the house with handguns.

She said the men told them to get on the ground and began searching them and demanding money.

The victim told an officer that one of the men took her to a bedroom, and raped her at gunpoint.

She said the man then left and she went straight to the hospital.

On Wednesday, officers were called to the same house on East Allen Street for a disturbance.

When police arrived, the same woman said Davon Donn came to the house asking to use a phone and she recognized him as the man who raped her two days before.

One of the people at the house held Donn until police arrived and he was arrested.

Donn is being held at the Craighead County Detention Center in lieu of a $35,000 bond.

His next court appearance is scheduled for November 30. 

If convicted, Donn could face 10-40 years or life in prison.
