A Northern Westchester man is facing charges alleging that he raped a woman last year.

New Castle resident Rami Ghrewati, 54, was arraigned in Westchester County Court last week after being indicted by a grand jury on charges that include rape, according to the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office.

Ghrewati stands accused of forcibly raping a woman in New Castle on either Nov. 4 or Nov. 5, the indictment alleges. He was arrested on Nov. 9 by Westchester County Police officers. No other information was immediately available.
