CROWN POINT — A Morocco, Indiana, man is accused of forcing a woman to perform a sex act at a Crown Point business where they both worked in January 2018, according to court records.

Daniel J. White, 35, faces four felony charges stemming from the incident, including rape, sexual battery and criminal confinement.

White was arrested on a warrant Monday and taken to Lake County Jail, where he remained Tuesday on a $50,000 bail. His next hearing is set for June 26.

The woman alleges White began rubbing her shoulders while the two were alone in an office area Jan. 16, 2018, at NWI Generator. She told him to stop, but he didn't listen, court records allege.

He then groped her before pinning her against a wall within the business in the 1100 block of Breuckman Drive, court records state.
