A Milton business owner is accused of raping a woman who asked him for a ride home from a bar last week, police said.
Robert Bohensky is accused of taking the woman to his home and raping her, but he maintains his innocence, Channel 2 Action News reported.
Milton police told Channel 2 the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office received a call from the woman’s family, who used an app to track her phone to a home on Freemanville Road.
Officers visited the home and found Bohensky and the alleged victim, who said she was sexually assaulted, police said. The woman told the officers Bohensky offered to give her a ride, but he instead took her to his home.
AJC.com’s policy is not to identify victims of sexual assault.
Bohensky’s attorney told the news station the relationship was consensual, and he described it as “buyer’s remorse.”
“When they got home, she may have gotten to the point of sobriety where she realized she’s in deeper than she wished and called a family member, and it snowballed from there,” attorney Steve Murrin said.
Murrin said Bohensky is a small business owner who takes mission trips with his church, and he denies all allegations against him.
Bohensky faces charges of rape, battery, kidnapping and false imprisonment, according to Fulton County Jail records. He remains in jail without bond. His preliminary court hearing is scheduled for Jan. 25.
