IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

An Illinois man has been arrested and charged with raping a University of Iowa student on the Pentacrest.

Evan Michael Pfeifer, 18, of Lake Barrington, Illinois, was arrested on Monday and charged with raping a University of Iowa student on Oct. 3, 2010.

Police say the victim was walking back to the dorms on the west side of the Pentacrest early in the morning when a man pushed her to the ground and had non-consensual sex with her after she told him "no" and "stop".

Police say the victim later saw her alleged attacker and used a "ruse" to get his name.

Police say that DNA they found on the victim matched that of Pfeifer.

Pfeifer is charged with Third Degree Sexual Abuse.

According to Iowa Courts Online, a preliminary hearing was scheduled for Friday, but he waived his right to appear. He is being held on a $10,000 cash bond.

No other court dates have been set.
