Though the victim did not know her attacker, she provided officers with a detailed description that led to his Saturday afternoon arrest at the Motel 6 on Calle Joaquin in San Luis Obispo. During a search of his room and car, officers found evidence linking Micheal Covert, 26, to the rape.
Officers arrested Covert and booked him into the San Luis Obispo County Jail with his bail set at $100,000.
Police are not releasing the name of the victim.
