HUNTINGDON - A 24-year-old Ebensburg man was arrested for rape after troopers and a helicopter were brought in to help search the woods surrounding Raystown Lake Sunday.
Joseph Cyril Burns is accused of raping a 23-year-old woman on a boat moored in a lake cove. Others on the boat told the man to leave, and he and a friend got off the boat in a remote area of the lake.
State police troopers, a helicopter and Army Corp of Engineers rangers conducted a search. The man and his friend were spotted from above, and troopers had to go in by boat to get to them.
Burns was arrested without incident, police said.
He was arraigned by Magisterial District Judge Douglas Gummo and placed in the Huntingdon County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
