The Union of Nevada County is reporting that a Rio Linda man has been arrested and is being held on suspicion of attempted rape.

Sergey Alexandrovich Stepanov, 49, of Rio Linda, and Tudor Stefanco, 42, of Rancho Cordova, both face felony charges of kidnapping to commit rape and false imprisonment.

Early Sunday morning Nevada County Sheriff Deputies responded to reports of an assault in the 18000 block of Rollins View Drive. The complainant said two men tried to rape her outside a cabin, according to Nevada County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Andrew Trygg said.

The men had met the female that same evening at a social gathering.

Both men remain in Nevada County Jail facing $250,000 bail.
