A Louisville man accused of beating and raping a woman outside an apartment building went before a judge this weekend.
William Smartwood was arrested Friday morning on rape charges. Police say early Friday morning Smartwood asked to use a woman's cell phone then took her behind a building, dragged her by her hair up a flight of stairs and raped her. Investigators say he is also accused of attacking another woman back in February.
A judge ordered he be held on a $200,000 bond.
