CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A man who was given permission to sleep on a friend's couch ended up in his host's roommate's bed and arrested for rape, according to police.

According to a Charleston police report, 23-year-old Ryan Tillman Thrasher was staying on a friend's couch Monday night.

The victim told police she woke up and found Thrasher on top of her in the middle of sexual intercourse. She said she initially thought he was her boyfriend but when she realized it wasn't she asked Thrasher who he was.

The victim said Thrasher told her they had met in a bar but she stated that wasn't the case, got up and banged on her roommate's door.

The roommate told police she awoke to find the victim crying in the living room and Thrasher gathering up his things "as if to leave in a hurry."

A third roommate was awoken by the noise and called police, the report states.

Thrasher is charged with criminal sexual conduct in the first degree.
