A West Haven man is being held on bond in connection with allegations he choked and raped a 15-year-old girl.

Robert Andrews, 34, was giving the victim a ride on Sunday when he reportedly stopped in a wooded area near Riverview Hospital in Middletown.

The victim told police she got out of the car after refusing to have sex with Andrews and was grabbed by Andrews and choked until she passed out. The girl woke up with her pants down and walked to a nearby home for help.

The victim’s injuries were so severe, medical personnel were surprised she survived.
