A reported rape led to the arrest of a Hays man Sunday morning on drug-related charges.
Joshua Robert Quinlan, 30, was taken into custody following the execution of a police search warrant following two reports of rape made against him by the same person, said Lt. Brandon Wright with the Hays Police Department.
The drug charges include possession of opiate, opium, narcotic or certain stimulant drugs and drug paraphernalia.
One alleged rape was reported Friday, followed by a second report Saturday. Both incidents had a location of 700 E. Sixth, which also is listed as Quinlan’s address.
The rape reports were made by a person who has a relationship with Quinlan, Wright said.
The charges are being forwarded to the county attorney’s office.
