Norwich - Police arrested a 32-year-old Norwich man Friday on kidnapping, sexual assault and other charges stemming from an alleged rape last month.

Demetrius A. Carswell of 47 Division St. was charged by warrant Friday and taken into custody without incident at his residence, according to a written statement from Norwich police.

Carswell is charged with first-degree kidnapping, first-degree sexual assault, third-degree assault, second-degree threatening and first-degree unlawful restraint. The charges stem from a March 30 incident that allegedly occurred in a parking lot of the west side of town. Police declined to provide any further details.

Held in lieu of a $200,000 bond, Carswell is scheduled to appear Monday in Norwich Superior Court.
