Clearwater man accused of raping woman

UPDATE: The Pinellas-Pasco State Attorney's Office later dropped the charges related to this case. The case also has been expunged.

Original report follows:

A 44-year-old Clearwater man was arrested Friday on charges that he raped a woman who visited his home several days ago, police said.

Authorities say the woman agreed to go to Craig M. Rahn's apartment in Clearwater on Thursday. Rahn grabbed her at about 1 a.m. and dragged her into a room after she used his bathroom, she told detectives.

Rahn raped the woman and then grabbed her as she tried to run, according to an arrest affidavit. She eventually broke free and left, the report said.

Rahn bonded out of jail Friday night, records show.
