Sexual assault charges filed against Rice Lake man


RICE LAKE - Charges are filed against a Rice Lake man accused of sexually assaulting one of his neighbors.

Lars Miller was 26 when he allegedly raped the 52-year old woman in 2011. She came to police two weeks later saying she had been afraid to report it out of fear of retaliation.

Police say the woman told them she was celebrating her birthday at home with her boyfriend in 2011, when Miller introduced himself as her neighbor. She invited him to join them, but says Miller attacked her after her boyfriend left.

Detectives say they recently identified one of Miller's fingerprints on an item from the woman's bedroom, resulting in the decision to file charges.
