Barron County man allegedly holds down, rapes woman

Barron County (WQOW) – A Cameron man faces up to 40 years in prison for allegedly holding down a woman and sexually assaulting her.

It happened July 8 at a home in Rice Lake. The victim told police that Darren Thibedeau held her down, covered her mouth and raped her at her home.

She said children and at least one other person were in the home at the time.

When interviewed by police, Thibedeau admitted the victim said “no” during sex but he did not stop.

He is free on a $5,000 signature bond. He returns to court next week.
