      Columbia man arrested for rape

      Brian Adkison, 23, was arrested Thursday morning for rape, deviate sexual assault and first-degree burglary.

      A 23-year-old man was arrested Thursday morning for rape, deviate sexual assault and first-degree burglary.

      Columbia police responded to One Hospital Drive at 5:15 a.m. on Saturday, May 4, for a report of a rape that happened at a residence on Lovejoy Lane.

      During the ensuing investigation, authorities said they learned that Brian Adkison entered a 23-year-old woman's Lovejoy Lane residence without permission. He went into the bedroom, where the woman tried to make him leave.

      Adkison then removed the woman's pants and "subjected her to deviate sexual intercourse...then forced sexual intercourse," according to police.

      The woman then went to the hospital.

      Authorities said Adkison and the woman knew each other.

      Adkison's bond for the deviate sexual assault was set at $4,500. Bond amounts for rape and first-degree burglary have not yet been set.
