WEST FARGO - A 51-year-old man arrested after police received a report of a suicidal person at a West Fargo home has been charged with incest and gross sexual imposition.

The two felony counts against Sergio Hidalgo Jr. were filed Friday, March 2, in Cass County District Court. Hidalgo is being held at Cass County Jail.

Shortly after 9 a.m. Thursday, police were sent to a home in the Brookwood mobile home park on a report of a suicidal man, later identified as Hidalgo, court documents stated.

Emergency dispatchers had received a 911 text message from a woman related to Hidalgo, saying he "had raped her and that he was now going to kill himself," according to court documents.

The woman told police Hidalgo had a "sniper rifle" and another rifle, court documents said.

Within about 50 minutes, Hidalgo surrendered to police and was taken into custody without incident, police said. No shots were fired.

Court documents allege Hidalgo committed a sexual act when the victim "was asleep and he knew she was unaware."
