Last updated on Thursday, October 29, 2009

(SOUTH BEND, IN) - A suspect in a South Bend rape is in the St. Joseph County jail this morning, following an arrest Wednesday night after he was pulled over by police.

Authorities say the suspect is a 24-year-old man from Granger, but declined to release his name.

Investigators think he is the person who posed as an Indiana State police officer Tuesday, forcing his way into a 67-year-old woman's home near Indiana University South Bend.

He faces preliminary charges of rape, sexual deviant conduct, burglary and robbery.
