Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A night out at a bar in Fargo lands one man behind bars for sexual assault.

Police say 26-year-old Erik Ott of Moorhead raped a 35-year-old woman in the parking lot outside of the Hub around midnight.

There was a crowded 18-and-over party going on there Wednesday night.

Police say the two met inside earlier where there were consensual conversations.

The victim later told police that when she left with Ott, he forced her into a car; then sexually assaulted her.

Police are still determining if there were any injuries.

Lt. Joel Vettel- Fargo Police: “Sexual assault is an extremely difficult crime, one as a society to understand and it certainly is one that is considered a very heinous crime and so we take those things very serious.”

Ott faces a felony charge of gross sexual imposition.
