RALEIGH, N.C. — A Raleigh man is accused of raping a woman and kidnapping her two young sons, according to arrest warrants.

Casiano Aparicio-Juarez, 22, of 6003 Gamble Drive, faces charges of second-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping.

Aparicio-Juarez allegedly raped the victim in front of her two sons, ages 7 and 2, according the arrest warrants. Investigators say he then locked the family in a room and kept them there for three days.

Aparicio-Juarez was arrested Friday and was being held in the Wake County Jail Sunday afternoon under a $275,000 bond.

State Department of Correction records list Aparicio-Juarez as an absconder from parole supervision. He was given a years' probation after a November 2007 conviction for driving while impaired in Wake County.

Aparicio-Juarez appeared in court on the rape and kidnapping charges on Saturday. His first court appearance on the probation violation was set for Monday.

Warrants listed Aparicio-Juarez' occupation as a carpet layer.
