Plumber charged in rape of acquaintance

Anton Hopkins, a 24 year old Chicago plumber, is charged with raping another 24 year old that he knew when he offered to take his alleged victim to a gas station from a Southwest Side of Chicago school parking lot, but raped her instead.

Hopkins offered to take a 24-year-old female acquaintance to a gas station to put gas in her car but instead pulled her car into the lot, where they quarreled and he sexually assaulted her, Assistant State's Atty. Mikki Miller said at the bail hearing.

Hopkins drove to a gas station and got out to pump gas, which allowed the woman to drive away and call police.

Aggravated criminal sexual assault is a Class X felony in Illinois, punishable by between 6 and 30 years in prison. Hopkins is being held on $275,000 bail.
