MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A dance performer and instructor is accused raping a teenage student while the boy spent the night at the teacher’s Minneapolis apartment.

The Star Tribune reports 28-year-old Decorey L. Bozeman was charged in Hennepin County District Court with first-degree criminal sexual conduct in connection with the alleged assault of the dance studio student.

Bozeman appeared in court Wednesday and remains jailed in lieu of $50,000 bail ahead of another hearing on Jan. 28.

Defense attorney Rachael Goldberger said Thursday that “I can’t really say much. I don’t even have the police reports yet.”

On Monday, the young teen told police that he spent the previous night at Bozeman’s apartment in Minneapolis and was sexually assaulted by the instructor.

Bozeman told law enforcement that he picked up the boy on Sunday from a dance studio and confirmed that he raped the child.
