Jurors wiped away tears during testimony Wednesday for an Albemarle County rape trial. Henry Jasper, 32, faces charges of rape and abduction with intent to defile.

The alleged victim testified through sobs that she did not know Jasper and he forced his way into her apartment and raped her at knife-point. Investigators say the attack happened in April 2013 on the 1600 block of Fifth Street.

In court Wednesday, Jasper's defense team said it was consensual sex.

Day two of the trial continues Thursday in Albemarle County Circuit Court.
