WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (WAVY) – An 18-year-old man was arrested Tuesday in connection to a rape that occurred last year.

Maj. Greg Riley with the Williamsburg Police Department told an arrest warrant for Jaiven Treyvon Knight was issued Tuesday on a charge of rape.

The alleged incident occurred Aug. 25 at a home in the 700 block of Lafayette Street. Officers met the victim at the hospital the next day, where she said she was having a party at her home and at some point went to her bedroom.

The victim told police she was later sexually assaulted by a stranger. Further investigation led officers to Knight, Riley said.

Knight turned himself into authorities Tuesday.
