Billings Man Charged With Raping Man in Alley
A 32-year-old Billings man is charged with luring another man into a downtown alley and raping him.
The Billings Gazette reports Waylon Jace Iron was arrested Wednesday night and made an initial appearance in Justice Court Thursday on a charge of sexual intercourse without consent. Justice of the Peace Pedro Hernandez set his bail at $50,000.
Iron's public defender's request for a lower bond was denied.
Charging documents allege Iron told the man he was a Bureau of Indian Affairs officer and offered to take him to an apartment for beer. The man told police Iron pulled him into a dumpster enclosure and after he refused Iron's advances, Iron raped him. The man said he was able to get away when Iron passed out.
Iron denied knowing the victim or having any physical contact with him.
