HUDSON FALLS - A military recruiter from Hudson Falls in behind bars, accused of rape.

The National Guard says Robert Haas, 35, has been in the military since 1996 and currently works at the Watervliet Arsenal.

Police say the case started as an assault investigation after the victim was taken to Glens Falls Hospital with injuries.

Further investigation led to Haas being charged with rape and obstruction of breathing.

The Washington County Sheriff says this was not random attack and occurred at his home.

The Sheriff says he is not aware of Haas using his power as a military recruiter to prey on women.
