Spokane police early today arrested a man suspected of raping a woman in North Spokane.

Officers were called to the 6700 block of North Standard about 4:15 a.m. on a report of a sexual assault, said Spokane Police Officer Devin Presta.

The call was made by the friend of the victim, who “was not unfamiliar” with the alleged attacker, “but did not know his name,” Presta said.

Based on a description provided to police, officers arrested Justin L. Dehn, 22, within several blocks of the scene. He was interviewed and then booked into the Spokane County Jail on a count of second-degree rape and two counts of indecent liberties, Presta said.
