Bradford Man Charged with Rape

A Bradford man is accused of raping a woman late Sunday night in Westline.

25-year-old Matthew Orris is described in court papers as the on-again off-again boyfriend of the victim. She says she contacted him at about 10 o’clock Sunday asked for a ride home from her friend’s camp. She says they had to take back roads because the main road was closed because of the fatal accident investigation. She says during the drive Orris was irritated with her because she hadn’t texted him since Wednesday. At one point he stopped the pickup truck, she got out and started to walk away, but he pulled her back to the truck and raped her.

Orris told police the sex was consensual. Police say a medical exam and evidence from the truck are consistent with the victim’s statement.

Orris is charged with rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with forcible compulsion and indecent assault. He’s in McKean County Jail on $50,000 bail.
