A Morris man was charged with three first-degree felonies — rape, criminal sexual act and unlawful imprisonment — Wednesday after police arrested him in the city of Rome, State Police said.

Dustin Freeman, 30, was arrested after it was reported he threatened a victim with a knife and sexually assaulted the victim in the New Berlin area, deputies said.

Freeman was located by troopers in Rome and fled arrest on foot, deputies said. He was later taken into custody, authorities said, after a brief search by deputies and Rome City police officers.

Authorities said that Freeman was transported and processed at the State Police barracks in Norwich. He was later arraigned in the Town of Norwich Court and then remanded to the Chenango County Jail without bail, deputies said.

An order of protection was issued by the judge to the victim, authorities said.

The investigation is still ongoing.
