MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis man is charged with raping a woman while her grandson watched.

A woman told police the attack happened June 27 in the 3300 block of Steve Road.

Larry McGowan was arrested Wednesday and charged with aggravated rape and aggravated burglary.

The victim said a man, who she later identified as McGowan, climbed through a window and threatened to shoot her while her grandson slept next to her.

The woman said as she was being raped, the grandson woke.

She said McGowan forced the two to go into another room where her daughter and another person were sleeping and ordered them to undress.

There was an argument, and the woman said McGowan ran from the apartment.

Police reviewed security video from the complex and did see a naked man coming from her apartment.

A license plate number led police to McGowan.
