A Bowling Green man is facing four criminal charges, including second degree rape, according to electronic court records maintained by the Pike County Circuit Court Clerk’s office.

Christopher Hensen, 22, of Bowling Green, has been charged with second-degree rape, second-degree statutory rape, second-degree sodomy, and second-degree statutory sodomy.

All of the charges are Class D felonies.

Pike County Prosecuting Attorney Mark Fisher filed the criminal charges on Sunday.

According to a probable cause statement filed in the case, officers with the Bowling Green Police Department were dispatched to an apartment on West South Street in Bowling Green to investigate an alleged assault on Saturday afternoon.

Once at the apartment, the alleged victim told authorities that Hensen had raped her and had sexually assaulted her.

Later that day, authorities questioned Hensen.

In the interview, Hensen reportedly acknowledged that he had intercourse with the victim.

As the case involves sexual assault, authorities with the Bowling Green Police Department and the Pike County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office are not releasing the alleged victim’s name.

On Sunday, a warrant was issued for Hensen’s arrest. He was taken into custody on Monday and is being held on a $50,000 cash only bond.

Electronic court records show that Pike County Prosecuting Attorney Mark Fisher is handling the prosecution of this case. Hensen does not have a defense attorney at this time per court records.

Officials with local circuit court system say an arraignment has not yet been set in the case.
