Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. - A New York man was arrested over the weekend in Dover, on rape charges.

Dover Police say on Sunday, around Midnight, officers responded to a 911 call at the Comfort Suites on North DuPont Highway. Officers say once they arrived, they met with a woman, who said that she was staying at the hotel, and was forced to have sexual encounters on two occasions, with 33-year-old Karl Hoennicke.

The victim reportedly told Police that Hoennicke threatened her life, while physically forcing her to have sexual encounters. The woman was evaluated and treated for minor injuries at Bayhealth-Kent General Hospital, after the incident.

Hoennicke was arrested, and charged with 2 counts of 2nd degree rape. He is being held on $40,000 bond at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center. Police say Hoennicke is originally from the Kent County area, and that the investigation is still on-going at this time.
