MERIDIAN — A Meridian man is facing felony charges after police say he sexually assaulted a woman he met online.
Lt. Jamie Leslie of the Meridian Police Department said Jeremy E. Threatt, 26, chatted with the victim online before the pair decided to meet in person.
When the woman, who is an adult, went to Threatts Meridian home Sunday, he raped her, Leslie said.
The victim fled as soon as she could, Leslie said.
She ran out of the house, went to the hospital, and immediately notified the police department, he said.
Officers found and arrested Threatt the same day. He has been charged with rape and forcible penetration with a foreign object, both felonies.
The suspect has previous convictions for unlawful entry and telephone harassment. He is set to be arraigned at the Ada County Courthouse on Tuesday afternoon.
