WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - Worcester police have arrested a city man they say committed a series of violent crimes in a short period, including a rape and a carjacking.

Antonio Damon is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday on charges including aggravated rape, armed robbery, kidnapping, and carjacking.

Police responded to a city business just after 5 p.m. Tuesday after a 27-year-old woman called to say a man with a knife had entered the business and raped her. In less than an hour, police received reports of a carjacking, a hit-and-run accident, and an armed robbery.

The 35-year-old Damon was apprehended after the robbery. Police say he struggled during the arrest, yelled obscenities and claimed to have an assault weapon that he would use to “spray” officers.

It’s not clear if Damon has a lawyer.
