Man charged with breaking into apartment and raping woman

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- A Frayser man is behind bars, accused of breaking into a woman's home and attacking her.

William Morris, 25, will be in court Tuesday on aggravated rape and burglary charges.

Police say he broke into the woman's home on Boone Street back in July, while the victim was asleep.

The victim told police Morris was armed with a knife and wanted money.

When she told him he didn't have any, police say Morris ordered her to take off her clothes and then raped her.
