PADUCAH - A man charged with the rape and assault of an elderly woman appeared in court Thursday for an arraignment.

The McCracken Circuit Court Clerk said 39-year-old Gary Pugh was arraigned on charges of rape, sexual abuse, assault, and unlawful imprisonment. A jury trial is set for June 7.

Pugh was arrested on July 20 after an 80-year-old woman told authorities he showed up at her house and asked to pray with her. Police say he then forced the woman into a bathroom where he physically and sexually assaulted her.
