Springdale Man Accused of Rape, Held on $100K Bond

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) - A Springdale man is behind bars after police say he held a woman against her will and raped her at his home this past weekend.

Quinton Fisher, 24, was booked into the Washington County Detention Center on Tuesday and faces charges of rape, first-degree false imprisonment, third-degree domestic battering, aggravated assault and more, jail records state. His bond has been set at $100,000.

Police found the victim on Monday and noted she appeared to have been involved in a disturbance. The woman told authorities Fisher took her tablet away (her only means of communication with family and friends). An arrest report also states that Fisher urinated on her, choked her, dragged her by the hair, and forced her to go with him to multiple locations.

On two occasions, Fisher forced her to take sleeping medicine, police said.

The victim told police he threatened to burn down her house with her child in it if she screamed. So, she didn't scream out of fear for her child, authorities said.

She was finally allowed to leave when an unnamed man intervened and spoke to Fisher, telling him not to make the victim cry, according to the arrest report. It states when police found her, she had scratches and bruises on her collar bone.

A search warrant was executed at Fisher's home, and inside police reported finding what appeared to be blood on the carpet, the odor of urine, sleeping pills, marijuana and the victim's underwear, authorities said.

Fisher is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 18.
