Nathan Brum has been arrested by Nye County Sheriff's Office for sexual assault and battery.

The sheriff's office received a report of a rape in the town of Gabbs on Nov. 25. The victim told the deputies that she and Braum were planning to go rock hunting in the desert when they got into an argument and Brum forced his way into her residence and assaulted her.

After he left the woman's home, Braum reportedly told a friend of the victim that he raped her.

Brum was arrested and transported to the Nye County Detention Center. He is being held on $13,000 cash or bond.
