A Bellingham man wanted on a $100,000 warrant on suspicion of rape in the second degree by forcible compulsion turned himself in, according to court documents.
Carlos A. Martinez, 25, is accused of raping a woman at a North Whidbey beach in August 2017, the police reports states.
The 18-year-old woman said she rebuffed Martinez’ advances, but he held her down in the sand and raped her, the report states.
Martinez denied raping or having sex with the woman. DNA evidence obtained from the rape kit matched Martinez’ DNA profile, according to the report.
Martinez will appear in court Monday.
