Weldon police Chief Chris Davis said Joshua Jackson, 32, was arrested shortly before 8:15 a.m. at his Roanoke Rapids residence.
He was taken before a magistrate and was jailed without opportunity for bond. He has a July 1 court date.
Davis said Monday Sergeant T. Mason of the police department obtained a warrant for the arrest of Jackson following an investigation by himself and Officer M. DiPietro.
The officers arrived at the 500 block of Cedar Street shortly before 10:30 p.m. after receiving a domestic call.
They spoke with the female victim and discovered she had been sexually assaulted.
Mason obtained a warrant on Jackson for second-degree forcible rape against an adult.
