KASOTA — A Kasota man is accused of raping a woman after she asked him for a ride home.

Matthew Michael Tollefson, 41, was charged with felony criminal sexual conduct Friday in Le Sueur County District Court.

A woman told authorities she decided she should not drive after drinking at bars in downtown Mankato last Friday night so she called Tollefson. Instead of taking her home as she requested, Tollefson took the woman to his house.

The woman said she was pretending to sleep when Tollefson began to sexually assault her. She said she told him “no” and tried to get away but Tollefson would not stop.
