Mankato Police say a 22-year-old Mankato man raped his neighbor after a night of drinking last Saturday.

The victim told investigators that she had returned home from a night out and had gone to bed with her boyfriend, and woke to someone having sexual intercourse with her. At first, the woman said she thought it was her boyfriend but soon realized it was her neighbor, Michael Hunter II. She said she believes he entered the apartment through an unlocked front door.

The woman called 911 and later went to the hospital to have a sexual assault kit collected.

Later that morning officers picked up Hunter near his home and took him into the public safety center but investigators say he refused to speak with them.
