A Chadron State College student is in the Dawes County Jail on a rape charge. Bail is set at $100,000 for 19-year old Malik Ahmed-Hosie on one count of 1st-Degree Sexual Assault.
Chadron Police Investigator Dusty Bryner says the college is cooperating with the department on the case.
Investigator Bryner says officers were called to Chadron Community Hospital early Sunday morning after a person came to the ER and reported a sexual assault.
Sgt Chelsey Stolley and Officer Chet Swanson began the investigation, taking initial statements and collecting evidence.
On Tuesday, Bryner used that information to obtain a search warrant for a Chadron residence. When the warrant was served, officers obtained clothing and photographic evidence while also conducting more interviews.
Ahmed-Hosie was among those interviewed after the warrant was served and was arrested following his interview.
