A 23-year-old man has been charged with the rape of a 27-year-old woman near the Metro-North train station in White Plains.

Carlos Pauate of White Plains was arrested Tuesday following an investigation that included the release of a composite sketch to officers and the public in hopes of locating the suspect, White Plains Police said.

As previously reported by Daily Voice, the woman was attacked Wednesday, Nov. 8, around 11:30 p.m., several blocks from the Metro-North train station on a path that is frequently used by commuters, said White Plains Police Chief Anne Fitzsimmons.

During the attack on Water Street, Pauate rode up on a bike from behind, grabbed the woman and took her to a wooded area where she was sexually assaulted, the chief said.

Paute, who is employed as a construction worker, was located at his home in White Plains, police said.

He has been charged with first-degree rape and is being held for arraignment.
