OCEAN CITY, Md.- An Ocean City man has been indicted on second-degree rape and related charges following accusations that he sexually assaulted a woman in the resort town back in May, authorities announced Wednesday.

Ocean City Police said that on May 29, they received a complaint about a sexual assault involving a woman and 32-year-old James Lee Travis.

Police said the investigation that followed revealed that on May 24, the victim and Travis were out for the evening at an Ocean City restaurant with friends and later returned to a home on Bayshore Drive. According to investigators, when the victim went to sleep she woke up to find Travis sexually assaulting her.

On July 23, a Worcester County grand jury indicted Travis the charges of second-degree rape, second-degree sex offense, third-degree sex offense, fourth-degree sex offense-sexual contact and second-degree assault.

Travis is being held at the Worcester County Jail.
