PARIS, Maine — A Conway, N.H., man accused of raping a woman in Fryeburg in July appeared in 11th District Court on Friday afternoon.
Raymond Robblee, 48, was arrested Thursday in Conway by Fryeburg police and charged with gross sexual assault, a Class A felony punishable by up to 30 years in prison and a $50,000 fine.
As of Friday afternoon, Robblee remained in the Oxford County Jail in Paris on $50,000 cash or $75,000 surety bail.
According to an arrest affidavit signed by Fryeburg police officer Michelle Legare, the charge stems from an attack on a woman in Fryeburg in late July. Fryeburg police Chief Phil Weymouth contacted Robblee at his Conway auto repair shop on Aug. 20 and Robblee indicated he did not intend to return to Maine. The chief offered him a chance to turn himself in and get bailed in Maine or have an arrest warrant issued, the affidavit said.
In court Friday, Assistant District Attorney Richard Beauchesne said Robblee was arrested in Conway this week by Fryeburg police.
As a condition of his bail, Robblee is to have no contact with the woman.
