Police say they arrested Craig R. Mullett, 21, on Monday evening after completing their investigation into allegations of rape, strangulation and sexual abuse. Niagara County Sheriff’s Deputies say they headed up the investigation and gathered enough information to charge Mullett with first degree rape, second degree strangulation and two counts of first degree sexual abuse.

During his arraignment, a judge set bail at $25,000 cash or $50,000 property bond. Deputies then brought Mullett to the Niagara County Correctional Facility.

Mullett will return to court in Lockport on Aug. 27.
