A man has been arrested for a Valentine's Day rape and robbery at Woodcrest Apartments, Dover police announced Saturday.

Mahdi Wilson, 25, was arrested Friday afternoon by Dover police with assistance from the First State Fugitive Task Force. He has been charged with robbery, rape, assault and other related charges in connection with the reported early-morning home invasion on Feb. 14.

A resident was leaving his apartment in the 900 block of Woodcrest Drive when two armed men approached, forced him back in and demanded the others inside lie on the floor, according to Dover police. The robbers stole game systems, jewelry, a wallet, clothes, cellphones and car keys.

Both male victims initially failed to disclose to investigators that there was a woman at home when the home invasion occurred. It took about two hours for the victims to notify police; they said they thought they were still being held hostage. Police later learned that a 19-year-old woman was ordered to partially undress and was allegedly sexually assaulted by Wilson.
