— A Garner man is accused of breaking into a Raleigh woman's home and raping her, according to arrest warrants.

Police wrote in the warrants that Christopher Daniel Tedesco, 25, broke into the woman's home, held a knife at her throat and sexually assaulted her over the course of Friday and Saturday.

The warrants characterized the incident as domestic violence.

Tedesco was charged Saturday with two counts of second-degree rape and one count each of second-degree sexual offense, first-degree kidnapping, felony breaking and entering and misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon.

Tedesco was placed in the Wake County and denied bond under a 48-hour domestic violence hold. His first court appearance was set for Monday.

If he is allowed bond later, he is ordered to have no contact with the woman, according to court records.

Tedesco is the younger brother of Wake County school board member John Tedesco.
