Man charged with raping 2nd woman in Harrisburg


A Harrisburg man accused of raping a woman he met outside a Midtown bar has been charged in a second sexual assault in May.

Michael Ray Wright, 33, was charged Tuesday with rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, sexual assault, indecent assault and terroristic threats.

Police said the victim on May 25 met Wright at a bar on Third Street and after a few drinks invited him to her home. At some point during the night, she said Wright grabbed her by her face and told her that if she screamed, he would kill her.

The victim said she tried to scream for help and make noise to alert the neighbors, but Wright punched her in the back of the head, threatened her again, and then raped her. 

Wright was charged Monday with a sexual assault that occurred on July 13.

Police said Wright met that woman outside HMAC after the bar closed for the night. He hung out with her and a friend for a couple of hours, and then the friend took Wright and the woman to a home in the 600 block of Oxford Street.

At the home, Wright demanded oral sex from the victim. When she refused and tried to leave, Wright hit and raped her, police said.

Wright’s was sent to Dauphin County Prison on $150,000 bail after his first arrest. Bail was denied after the second arrest.
