Man accused of rape in downtown lot

A Spokane man is accused of raping a man in a downtown parking lot last weekend.

Jonathan M. Ricardo, 31, is in jail on $150,000 bond for a second-degree rape charge. He was arrested Sunday after the alleged victim told police he was raped after drinking and playing pool with Ricardo at Irv's bar, then going to Ace's Casino on North Division.

The man, who was treated for sexual assault-related injuries at Deaconess Medical Center, told police that Ricardo drove him back downtown and raped him in a near-empty parking lot in downtown Spokane and gave him $100, according to court documents.

Ricardo appeared in Superior Court on Monday and remains at the Spokane County Jail.
