Jasper man arrested for rapeMay 3, 2013
From local sources
CELESTINE — The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department arrested 24-year-old Servando Escobedo, of 3828 N. Portersville Road, today in connection with an alleged rape early this morning.
A sheriff’s department detective said a car occupied by two females had a flat tire after 1 a.m. along Celestine Road North. The women had started walking away from the broken-down vehicle when a pickup truck pulling a turkey-loading trailer arrived on the scene. The truck was occupied by Escobedo and three other men who stopped and offered assistance.
Escobedo and another man got out of the truck. While the other man began changing the tire, the detective said, Escobedo allegedly took one of the women behind the trailer and sexually assaulted her.
Police said the women, who drove away after the tire was changed, later described the truck and the men to police, who located them at a turkey farm west of Celestine. All four men were brought in for questioning but three were released after telling police they had no knowledge that the assault had taken place.
Authorities booked Escobedo into the Dubois County Security Center at 7:14 a.m. on a Class B felony count of rape and a misdemeanor count of possessing a false government identification.
