HENRICO, VA—A man accused of raping a woman outside the Shoppes at Innsbrook early Saturday morning was denied bond in a Wednesday court hearing.

Driton Sulejmani, 25, has been charged with forcible rape and sodomy, in connection with the alleged attack. A judge denied Sulejmani bond in a Wednesday court hearing.

The alleged victim told police that Sulejmani was walking to her car around 1:30 a.m. Saturday, when he pulled her into a shrub and assaulted her.

According to court documents, Sulejmani was walking out of an Innsbrook bar with the alleged victim when he convinced her to follow his behind the bar.

Once behind the bar, Sulejmani allegedly threw the woman behind a row of bushes, slamming her head against a wall and raping her, court documents said.

The alleged victim told police she "tasted latex" during her attack, according to the documents.

The alleged rape was reported to Henrico County Police around 6 a.m. Saturday when the alleged victim arrived at St. Mary's Hospital in the West End.

Sulejmani is due back in court August 12.
