A Fort Hood soldier is charged with aggravated kidnapping and sexual assault for reportedly taking an Austin woman and raping her during Austin's Annual South by Southwest Festival.

Jeremy Christian Bolen, 23, was reportedly driving his pickup with a friend, Michael Broughton, 28, on March 16 when he forced the victim into his vehicle and raped her. The victim managed to get away and report the incident to police.

Authorities used DNA evidence to link the crime back to Broughton who was arrested on March 27. Bolen is believed to have been the driver and assisted in the assault. Bolen was arrested on Tuesday and is being held on a $100,000 bond.
