A Nigerian man has been arrested by policemen in the U.S. after he was accused of raping a woman.

Nnamdi Godson Nwankwo, 53, who worked at a group home in Raleigh, North Carolina, was arrested after he allegedly raped a 47-year-old woman who lives there.

Nwankwo was arrested about 10 a.m. on Tuesday in the 200 block of Merrell Drive, a dead-end residential street in East Raleigh.
 
Police spokeswoman, Laura Hourigan, said officers were checking on a car they thought was suspicious when they came up on Nwankwo and the woman, who is 47.
 
Police have not disclosed the name of the home where the woman lives.
