LOA, Utah — A man was arrested Sunday morning on suspicion of kidnapping and raping a younger woman.

Brent Neil Brown, 39, was booked on four felony counts: aggravated kidnapping, rape, object rape, and obstruction of justice.

Court documents say Brown held the woman, a 19-year-old college student, captive in his home in Loa (Wayne County) for multiple days.

After Brown was booked, a judge ruled Sunday afternoon that he be held without bail.
