Los Alamos Man Accused of Rape

........................................................................................................................................................................................

Gregory Thompson, 28, of Los Alamos, will be in court April 26 to be arraigned on charges that he raped another man while the man was asleep, the Los Alamos Monitor reported.

Police responded to a call at a Los Alamos residence early on the morning of Feb. 12 and a man who was pacing around the kitchen and was visibly upset told the officer that he had been visiting Thompson to help with some construction, that the two had begun drinking around 9 p.m. the night before and went to sleep around 2:30 a.m., according to the police report.

The man told police he woke up around 4 a.m. with someone in bed with him who told him “Relax, just let it happen. I won’t tell anyone,” the police report said.

The complainant said he recognized the voice as Thompson’s, struck him on the face and continued to hit him until Thompson let go and ran into the bathroom to clean up and fled the house, according to the report.

Later that morning, Thompson was interviewed by two police officers and allegedly waived his Miranda rights and told police he’d had several shots of liquor and performed oral sex on the other man while he was still asleep, The Monitor said.

Thompson, who said he called police to report being beaten up, had a cut to his forehead and some swelling around the wound, according to the police report.

Thompson is facing two counts of criminal sexual penetration, one count of attempted criminal sexual penetration and one count of attempted criminal sexual contact, The Monitor said.
