SILOAM SPRINGS — Dustin Tor­res, 24, of 15150 Har­ris Road in Low­ell was ar­rested Mon­day in con­nec­tion with rape, kid­nap­ping and ag­gra­vated as­sault.

A woman told a Siloam Springs Po­lice Depart­ment of­fi­cer and a de­tec­tive that Tor­res had barged into her home, kid­napped her in her car, stran­gled and cut her and raped her, ac­cord­ing to the af­fi­davit.

Ben­ton County Sher­iff’s deputies found Tor­res at his fa­ther’s house in Low­ell. Tor­res re­fused to let po­lice take swabs of his DNA and said he had had con­sen­sual sex with the woman and that she never said no, ac­cord­ing to the af­fi­davit.

He did tell po­lice that he stran­gled her, that he knew she was scared and that he did grab her and pull her back into the ve­hi­cle when she tried to leave, ac­cord­ing to the af­fi­davit.

Tor­res was be­ing held Tues­day at the Ben­ton County Jail on $100,000 bond.
