NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (AP) - A Longmeadow teenager is facing additional charges in connection with a rape at the University of Massachusetts.

Patrick Durocher pleaded not guilty Thursday in Hampshire Superior Court to charges of aggravated rape, aggravated assault and battery and kidnapping.

Durocher had been arraigned only on the aggravated rape charge in district court.

Prosecutors say the 18-year-old Durocher choked and raped the woman he did not know outside on the Amherst campus on Sept. 2. He and the women were students. School officials say he is no longer enrolled.

He is free on $10,000 bail with GPS monitoring and other conditions.

Neither he nor his lawyer commented.
