Woman reports to police that roommate raped her

Howard County police are investigating a Columbia woman's claim that she was raped by her roommate while she was under medication.

The 28-year-old woman told police the rape occurred early Thursday, but she reported the incident Saturday, said Sgt. Dave Richards, a county police spokesman.

Early Thursday, police said, the woman and a man who lives with her had an argument at their apartment.

The woman told police she was raped that night while under the influence of a prescribed medication, Richards said.

Detectives are conducting interviews in the case, police said.
