-A +A
A 36-year-old man arrested on charges of rape, sexual battery and oral copulation was released from the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office jail Tuesday after posting $75,000 bail. Alan Morgan Rey was taken into custody at about 5:02 p.m. Monday after Placer County Sheriff’s Office deputies, along with the Nevada County Narcotic Unit, made a vehicle stop on Interstate 80 at Placer Hills Road. The arrest was made after deputies responded to a Feb. 1 call from Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital for a female seeking medical attention for an alleged sexual assault. Authorities determined that a sexual assault had occurred based on interviews by Nevada County Sheriff’s detectives and the results of a medical examination. The alleged assault reportedly occurred sometime early Sunday morning at a residence in the Chicago Park area. Detectives searched the home and seized evidence possibly related to the crime. Rey is scheduled to appear in Nevada County Superior Court at 9 a.m. Feb. 23. Nevada County Sheriff’s officials say it is a policy not to issue a booking photo once a suspect has been released from custody. -Staff report
