OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP/WBOC) - Ocean City Police have charged a Virginia man with raping an acquaintance in a resort hotel room.

It happened in the early morning hours of May 25.

Ocean City Police said the victim and a group of friends were at an Ocean City nightclub where they ran into acquaintances from their hometown in Virginia.

Police said the two groups stayed together and went back to a hotel room where they continued to drink.

At one point some people left the hotel room, including the suspect, Romer Ortuno, 29, of Springfield, Va, while the victim was asleep.

Police said Ortuno later returned to the room and entered through an unlocked window and reportedly raped the victim.

On May 27 police arrested Ortuno at his home in Virginia and charged him with rape and burglary.
