MANATEE -- A 25-year-old Sarasota man admitted to deputies he raped a woman on Sunday, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
The woman, who was "very intoxicated," at first thought she was having sex with her boyfriend in her darkened bedroom and it wasn't until the assault was over did she realize she had been attacked by Jacob Bautista, according to a probable cause affidavit.
The woman ran out of her bedroom, awoke her boyfriend and told him what had happened.
Bautista fled the scene, but he was later located in the area of Honore Avenue between Old Farm Road and Grand Point. At the scene and later at Lakewood Ranch Medical Center, where he had been treated for injuries, he admitted that he had raped the woman, according to the sheriff's office.

Bautista was later taken to the Manatee County jail, where he is being held on a $7,500 bond on a charge of sexual assault.
