Sex Offender Accused of Strangling, Raping Woman Near River

A convicted sex offender is due in court after being arrested again in Lowell, Massachusetts, for allegedly raping a woman.

Vincent Lucas, 54, is accused of raping and strangling a woman near the Concord River last week. 

The victim was able to escape. 

Police say Lucas has a long criminal history, including a 2011 conviction for indecent assault. 

A judge will decide whether Lucas is too dangerous to be released on bail, pending trial.
