Police: Rapist posed as tattoo artist

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - An Allentown man accused of rape has been arrested for allegedly posing as a tattoo artist on Facebook to lure his victim.

Officials say 19-year-old Unique Santiago raped a woman in an alleyway near the 1100 block of Washington Street back in October.

Police say he committed the rape after offering the woman a free tattoo.

Santiago was arrested Friday after police say DNA testing confirmed he carried out the assault.

Santiago is being held at Lehigh County Prison.
