A 42-year-old Clovis man was arrested Monday afternoon and charged with kidnapping and rape after holding a Clovis woman against her will and raping her repeatedly, according to an arrest affidavit filed Tuesday in Curry County Magistrate Court.

Alex Montoya turned himself into police Monday afternoon and is being held on a $75,000 bond, according to the affidavit and jail officials.

Montoya admitted to police he forced his former girlfriend to have intercourse and threatened to kill her because he was jealous and wanted to degrade her, according to the affidavit,

The victim said she had consensual relations with him at his residence and she went to sleep, the affidavit said. She told police around 3 a.m. Monday she woke when she felt him tying her hands behind her, the affidavit showed.

The woman told officers Montoya raped her multiple times at his home and took her out into the county in his vehicle, raping her several more times, according to the affidavit.

The woman said Montoya threatened to kill her, the affidavit said, and told her he had a gun.
She said Montoya released her around 10 a.m. and she sought help.

Montoya is a registered sex offender and served 12 years for a 1982 rape conviction, records show.
