A 21-year-old man was in custody Monday on suspicion of raping a 72-year-old woman in her Huntington Beach apartment.

Ahkail Demyers was being held on $1 million bail, according to Huntington Beach police Officer Jennifer Marlatt.

Police were summoned to an apartment complex for seniors near Main Street and Yorktown Avenue about 7:50 p.m. Sunday, Marlatt said.

The victim told investigators that she met her alleged attacker in the apartment complex. After a conversation, she went back to her apartment and the suspect followed her inside and allegedly raped her, Marlatt said.

Demyers was arrested in the apartment complex, where he “may have an acquaintance,” but he does not live there, she said.

The victim went to a hospital for an examination but was back home Monday, Marlatt said.
