A Honduran man accused of a Christmas morning rape has waived his charges to court.
Shenango Township police charged Eddin Rolando Garcia-Zeron, 35, with rape, aggravated assault and indecent assault. He remains in the Lawrence County jail on $25,000 bond.
Court officials said the services of a certified translator were secured for Wednesday’s preliminary hearing.
According to court documents, police were called to the Super 8 Motel on New Butler Road at 9 a.m. Dec. 25 following an altercation between a man and a woman who did not speak English.
Police said they learned from a third party that the woman claimed to have been raped by the man at 6 p.m. Dec. 24, and again at 1 a.m. Dec. 25. Through a translator, she told police she fought the man off at approximately 7 a.m. Dec. 25.
