AMBRIDGE, Pa. (AP) — Police say the alleged after-hours rape of a female customer by a western Pennsylvania bartender has been captured on the tavern’s video surveillance cameras.

Online court records do not list an attorney for 37-year-old James Sumpter, of Ambridge, who has been in the Beaver County Jail since his arrest Sunday.

Police say Sumpter kept serving the victim drinks even after she fell of a bar stool, then locked the business and raped her while they were alone after closing time early Sunday at the Firehouse Lounge in Ambridge.

Sumpter faces a preliminary hearing Jan. 3 on charges of rape of an unconscious person and with furnishing alcohol to an intoxicated person. Online court records do not list an attorney for Sumpter.
