A 33-year-old Fargo man is accused of beating and raping a woman he knows before binding her legs and hands and threatening her with a knife, according to Cass County court records.


The woman told police he traced her face with the tip of the blade as she was bound to a toddler bed, the court records allege.

In an initial appearance on the charges Wednesday, bail for Bartholomew Francis Schumacher was set at $100,000. He's being held at the Cass County Jail.
