Windsor man charged with raping woman at East Windsor Hotel party
June 14 – A man is released on $100,000 bond as he is accused of raping a 19-year-old woman in her car outside a birthday party at an East Windsor hotel in June 2019.
Donovan Jordan Austin, 22, who listed an address on Plymouth Street in Windsor, was arrested on June 8, 2021, on charges of first-degree sexual assault in the case.
The woman told police the rape took place around 4 a.m. on June 20, 2019, outside the Baymont Inn and Suites at 260 Main Street, after she and Austin were in Austin’s car with another man, according to an affidavit from East Windsor Police Sgt. Julia Knowles.
The report says the woman said the second man left the car after he refused to perform a sex act on her. She said Austin moved from the driver’s seat to the back seat, where she was sitting, and assaulted her.
In social media communications between the woman and Austin, he “refused to communicate or acknowledge that the event had occurred,” the sergeant reported.
The sergeant said she tried several times to set up an interview with Austin, but her attorney told her Austin would not talk to her.
Attempts on Monday to reach Donnelly or another attorney from his former firm — Butler, Norris and Gold — for comment on the case were unsuccessful.
