A Bethlehem man has been charged with raping a woman on a boat docked at Lake Lanier, according to authorities.

In addition to rape, Inmer Escobar-Zunica, 33, was charged with aggravated sodomy. He was booked Oct. 8 in to the Hall County Jail, where he remains with no bond.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Derreck Booth said Escobar-Zunica committed the offenses between 8 p.m. Aug. 13 and 11 a.m. the next day on a boat docked at the lake in South Hall. 

Booth said the Bethlehem man knew the woman beforehand.

A victim advocate in Gwinnett County informed patrol deputies on Aug. 15. 

“Investigators then became involved in the case and obtained the arrest warrants for Escobar-Zunica on Sept. 30,” Booth wrote in an email.

Booth said deputies took Escobar-Zunica into custody at the Gwinnett County Jail before transporting him to the Hall County Jail.

Defense attorney Larry Duttweiler did not immediately return a request for comment.

The case is still under investigation.
