Pittsburgh Police have arrested a 29yrs old  Brookline based Nigeria man Samuel Okorie, and are charging him with rape, kidnapping, robbery and assault after they say he abducted a 21-year-old woman from a West Liberty Avenue gas station.

According to police report, . A 21 year old woman identified Okorie as the man who sexually assaulted her. Police say the victim ran up the street, crying for help. Neighbours said she was screaming 'help me, help me'. When a neighbour approached her, she said "he raped me, he's coming to get me.".

He's such a good looking guy, why would he turn to rape? And then the story is somehow. 
Police report says Okorie grabbed the woman from behind near a gas station on Saturday night, grabbed her cellphone and pushed her into nearby bushes where he sexually assaulted her. Reports states that Okorie then dragged the girl to his home where another sexual assault took place.

Detectives said the victim attempted to escape many times but was restrained by Okorie. Eventually she did manage to get away and ended up at a neighbour's house down the street, who then called the police.

Neighbours described Okorie as quiet, friendly and were surprised he was involved in something like this. 

He has been arrested and is currently held at the Allegheny county jail. His bail is set for $150,000. A hearing is scheduled for next week.

When will they stop tarnishing our image oversea?
