A 50-year-old Utah man has been charged with first-degree felony rape after he found a female neighbor unconscious on her front porch and allegedly forced sexual intercourse on her, police said.

The alleged incident occurred on May 19 in St. George, Utah.

"He said he did place it inside of her to try and get her temperature up," police wrote in a probable cause statement filed in 5th District Court.

Police told Kelly that his actions amounted to rape. He was charged Monday with one count of first-degree felony rape.

Kelly told officers that he found the victim passed out in front of her apartment and brought her inside his apartment, changed her clothes, and put her on his bed. He said he lay down next to her and hugged her to try to get her temperature up because she had been outside. He then attempted intercourse to warm her, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

Responding to an unconscious person call, police arrived to Kelly giving the woman CPR in his apartment.

The woman later told police she thought she might have been raped and recalled being dressed in a pair of the man’s underwear and shorts. She told police she had bruising on her pelvic and upper thighs, according to court documents.

The victim said the two had been intimate previously, but she told him that she didn't want to have sex with him again.
