Man Pretends to Be His Identical Twin Brother Then Rapes His Girlfriend
Are you a twin and secretly fantasized about sleeping with your twin brother's girlfriend?
Um, well, a Connecticut man did just that and now he's facing rape charges.
According to police, 25-year-old Jared Rohrig, pictured, posed as Joe Rohrig, his identical twin brother, to engage in a sexual encounter with his brother's girlfriend on July 19.
The woman has been dating Joe since March, and on July 19 she spoke on the phone with someone she believed was him and agreed to meet at his house, according to a search warrant.
When she arrived, she got into the hot tub with the Jared -- whom she believed was Joe -- began kissing him and agreed to go to an upstairs bedroom with him.
But as they were having sex she noticed something missing: the cowboy tattoo on Joe's left ass cheek was not there.
The woman "immediately began to cry and asked him where his tattoo went. The male replied that he had never had a tattoo and told her that she must have hooked up with his brother who had a tattoo. She realized at this point that this was not the person that she had previously had sexual relations with," said the warrant.
She told police that she got out of bed and tried to leave, but the Jared "grabbed her arms and threw her on the bed, where she continued to cry," and he continued to rape her, the warrant states.
Jared eventually drove the woman home, but could not find the way, even though Joe had previously visited there several times, she told police.
He told her Joe who had a steady girlfriend, did not want to meet her that day, but "he told me to go for it."
She told police she later received a text message from Joe's cell phone, the same one Jared had allegedly used to speak with her earlier, and the message read: "I want to apologize for what my brother did last night. I had no idea what was going on until this morning."
Jared surrendered to police Friday and posted $50,000 bond. He is to be arraigned on charges of first-degree sexual assault and criminal impersonation Sept. 8.
Oops, did we forget to mention: Jared is a police officer!
He has been on paid administrative leave from the force since July 23, pending the outcome of an internal investigation.
