A Radcliff man is facing two felony charges after a reported unwanted sexual incident with a woman Thursday morning.

William Vaughan, 63, was arrested by Vine Grove police after being dispatched to a West Vine Street residence for a possible domestic situation.

According to an arrest citation, Vaughan and a woman were in the residence and when police arrived he told the officer that nothing was wrong. The woman was sitting on a couch and wouldn’t acknowledge the officer.

When the woman did look toward an officer, she began to tear up, the report said. Vaughan then was taken outside and the woman said she did not feel safe and that Vaughn had bitten her face Wednesday and struck her in the eye.

According to the citation, there was a visible bruise on her cheek, but no visible mark on either eye.

She then told an officer Vaughan had engaged in unwanted sex with her even though she had told him to stop and he refused.

The woman was taken to Baptist Health Hardin in Elizabethtown to be examined.

Vaughan is charged with first-degree sodomy — domestic violence, a Class B felony punishable by 10 to 20 years in prison, if convicted; intimidating a witness in the legal process, a Class D felony punishable by one to five years in prison, if convicted; and misdemeanor fourth-degree assault — domestic violence, minor injury.

He is being held in lieu of a $5,000 cash bond and is scheduled to appear today in Hardin District Court.
